Voter turnout is important because it really helps the election and it can really change how the outcome of the is. Like this year people a lot of the youth wanted Hillary Clinton, but they didn’t take action to go vote. There were some youth that went to go vote and thought it was funny and voted for Harambe. Demographics is related to the election it is defined as the statistical data of population, especially those showing average age, income, education, etc. An amendment is related to the election because people vote on amendments.
But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage. Current cases are before the courts to decide if gerrymandering is legal. Some states have been discussing whether it should still be allowed during elections. “Many efforts are underway to remedy this political
Texas school tends to focus more on athletics and other extra-curricular organizations then focusing on what students are really there for, their education. Another downside is property taxes. Texas property tax rates are pretty high, the state is top 5 in the highest property tax. The reason why Texas has one of highest property tax rate is because there is no state income tax, so things essentially have to balance out somewhere. Weather also can play a huge role on the negative side.
A graph illustrates how competition affects the Democratic and Republican parties. During the 1860s, competition favored the Republicans with a level reaching over 20. However, in 2010, competition significantly diminished, reaching around two (Hopkins and Sides 2015, 77). Overall, Democrats and Republican elites influence the amounts of polarization in America, driven by their differing political ideologies and a hunger for greater political
Texas became a state with Coahuila. The people were not happy with this, particularly Juan Seguin. He stated that Coahuila would dominate politics. However, nothing changed and Coahuila did infact dominate state politics. However, Santa Anna did grant the request that Immigration be legalized from the United States, which had been banned in the Law of April 6, 1830, which had upset many Texans.
The country was also affected because it seemed that people were working hard to build something for themselves and their families as most people felt that the government was not on the same page and in support of the needs of the people. There seemed to be a lot of animosity toward the government from those in rural areas that needed to sell for their support of their selves and to pay for labor. So can we answer the question as to how the Whiskey Tax affected the country? Yes we can but the answer would really depend on how each person supports the ideas of the current administration. The effect of this tax could be seen as a positive or a negative.
If some citizens who are qualified to vote are denied the right to cast votes, it is considered as a severe abuse of political equality. The debate about the age of electoral majority has taken place for a long period; however, there has been moderately slight attention in the debate given to the exclusion of young people from the vote (Tremmel, 2015). Some of the critics of lowering the voting age to sixteen claim that the young people do not possess the capability and motivation of appropriately taking part in the elections. Some studies have shown that the turnout of the voters ages 18 years is relatively low, however, this cannot specifically attribute to the motivation to take part in the election (Wagner, Johann, & Kritzinger, 2012). This shows that this the issue of the age to the electoral majority is of significance and should be discussed.
Every candidate puts an enormous amount of effort into influencing voters but most people might think it is not simple and rather impossible to persuade voters with a positive message. But Barack Obama may have actually succeeded with his persuasion, mostly by speaking with sincerity and hope. He has pursued the political strategy of hopefulness for over eight years that it feels almost authentic. What likely impressed the audience was his advanced use of metaphor. It is natural to talk about politics by means of dozens of common metaphors but usually we do not even realise how many metaphors appear in speeches.
Without slaves, Texas’ economy would experience a major downfall. As time went by, the number of slaves in Texas only grew. According to statistics from the Bureau of Census, the slave population drastically increased, in“ 1836: 5000 1850: 58,161 1860: 182,566” (Document A). After depending so much on slavery for labor, it would be extremely hard for Texas to be able to quit using it and still be able to balance their economy. States’ Rights was also a big part of Texas seceding.
Also, voter trust in elections is not the same as support for government in a democracy as that is known as political trust. As such, the difference must be highlighted as persons often conflate the two. In the 2000 United States election they experienced something of this nature as it was unclear for a long period whether George W. Bush or Al Gore had won the election. In the United Kingdom, the introduction of postal voting led to allegations of election fraud among others in Birmingham in 2005 and some cases even made it to the courts and officials were found guilty. As such it is clear to see that trust in elections is of paramount
