Unit VI: The Progressive Era and World War I ~1900-1920~ A Meridian APUSH Study Guide by John Ho and Tim Qi x Elections Elections Republicans: William McKinley 1900 Democrats: William Bryans Roosevelt is nominated for vice presidency under McKinley. Bryans launches his campaign again based on free-silver with the addition of anti-imperialism. McKinley wins the election, but is assassinated barely six months in office and is succeeded by Roosevelt. Republicans: Theodore Roosevelt 1904 Democrats: Alton B. Parker Roosevelt wins a landslide victory on his own right with his enormous popularity. His progressive reforms were popular among the citizens, easily allowing him to defeat the Democratic candidate. Republicans: William Taft Democrats: William Jennings Bryans 1908 Socialists: Eugene Debs Hand-picked successor of Roosevelt (who had promised not to run for a third term), Taft is nominated by the Republicans promising to continue progressive policies. Bryans follows a similar platform, but is defeated by a large margin. The Socialist Party managed to secure a surprising number of votes. Republicans: William Taft Democrats: Woodrow Wilson 1912 Progressive Party: Theodore Roosevelt Roosevelt, loosing the Republican nomination, forms his own short lived Progressive Party (“Bull-Moose Party”) splitting the Republican votes. Roosevelt introduces the “New Nationalism” in response to Wilson’s “New Freedom” (see “Policies”). Wilson secures presidency with minority of the popular vote. Republicans: Charles Evans Hughes 1916 Democrats: Woodrow Wilson Wilson runs for a reelection promising to maintain neutrality (“he kept us out of war”) while Hughes advocated greater preparedness. Despite initial gains by Hughes, Wilson ultimately wins by a narrow margin. Republicans: Warren G. Harding Democrats: James M. Cox 1920 Socialists: Eugene Debs Republican candidate Harding wins with a platform of isolationism, promising to keep the nation out of international affairs. Cox, who promised additional reforms, was defeated by a large margin. Debs also made a strong showing for the Socialist Party despite being in prison. x The Progressive Movement h Third Political Parties Additional Political Parties Copyright© 2006 (Feb 26 th ) All rights reserved.
