1. The Conservative view point on business has been favored in the Roberts court, with the swing judge siding with the conservatives 10 times as opposed to the liberal 6, along with the making of complications when suing businesses.
2. Precedent is the majority opinion, or largely group decision that is riding the background the law. The Roberts court uses precedent to create laws and regulations that fit into these behind the scenes rules.
3. The Obama administration has an overall poor record in defending interests in court because the Court has a Conservative leaning, compared to Obama's liberal leaning. The President may luck out and get to appoint a judge, or may add tack-on's to his law so that the law would be more likely to be upheld by the Court.
4. Justice Kennedy, as he has been the justice most likely to be the deciding vote in a 5-4 decision.
5. There is a bias towards conservatism, as the mention of conservatives massively outweighs the mention of liberals, and the mention of liberals looks outward facing in the sense that they seem to be referred to as the "liberal group."
1. The NRA is pressuring their influenced senators in states where opposing the NRA is dangerous for reelection - They fear that if put into office, Dr. Murthy would use his position, while unrelated to gun policy, to advocate for gun control.
2. Senators risk losing support, especially for Democrats in Republican states.
3. The President sets nominations and speaks for the nominee to give credence to them. The President speaks to the senators to give his influence in the voting.
4. The White House could use new appointments to push its own agenda, to give more power and support to their causes. They learned that when nominations are put down, some support is lost and their causes lose the valuable support that they need to continue.
1. The media is, overall, looking for a candidate that is somehow associated with government, and not associated with the government at large. The candidate needs connections, but not popular connections - they need to have a name of themselves without latching on to anyone elses name. They also are looking for a good personality, and an appeal to both sides of the political parties. This is true for Democrats and Repbulicans, except for tiny details - mainly Democrats need to have a steady, but not heavy, tone of liberalism while the Repbulicans need to tone down their conservatism.
2. Sabato does not mention party platforms for the candidates, except with Brian Schweitzer when his conseravtism on guns and the environment are listed as disadvantages.
3. the "permanent presidential campaign" refers to the tendency of government officials to always be vying for the presidential slot in the closest election year. There is always consideration for who would be the next president.
4. I would say it would be a disadvantage to be labeled as an early leader - people like the idea of an underdog story, of someone who has taken a rise to power. To be labeled as an early leader would be to be put as an "obvious choice," and so would be to be put in a bad light with the public as they feel their opinion is being downtrodded by that specific candidate.
Texas remains a Republican-leaning state because its white residents are becoming increasingly Republican and its large Hispanic population, though solidly Democratic, is less so than Hispanics nationally.
1. Democrats Hope for a party reallignment because the influx of immigrants from the Latin American countries are much more likely to be Democrat in voting - this would, potentially, throw the potlitical balance into favor for the democrats. This would reflect "minority majority" because it would put the Hispanic population as the majority in Texas, where as elsewhere in the US the majority is primarily Caucasian.
2. Party identification in Texas leans towards Republican more so thatn it does for the national average - across all racial demographics. While there is still a Democratic population, it is significantly smaller than the national average. But, with the influx of immigrants, more Democrats are appearing in the state.
3. Gallup suggests that the immigrant minorities aren't likely to participate in politics - thus causing the state to remain Republican, as they are the ones who actually voice their opinions on matters.
4. A large sample was taken - the sample was split between 50% cell, 50% landline phones. The numbers were chosen at random, and the samples were weighted for probability, nonresponse, and double coverage that may have occured in a sample. Demographic weighting was based on population figures from the most recent census. Etc.
1. Obama chose to enact an executive order so that employees who share their wages do not become discriminated against. The executive order is limited to federal governmental contracts and does not automatically carry the backing of congress.
2. The criticism held to the executive orders is the affect on the nation as a whole without congressional support. This specific order is given criticism because it will affect the basic costs of companies and may raise prices.
3. The White House has chosen not to apply executive order to sexual orientated discrimination. The Obama administration does not want to interfere if Congress may give support in new legislation, as that may make Congress change the support they would give due to redundancy.
All about the Electoral College. This original video from Disney Educational Productions tackles one of the most interesting elements of U.S. presidential el...
Sean Kelly's insight:
1. The constitutional basis for the Electoral College was set up by the founding fathers in an effort to balance the setting of presidency between the Government and the People. The founding fathers did not want the federal government to have all the power, as that would defeat the point of a democratic republic, but they also did not trust the public entirely to pick a candidate, fearing they would pick their local leaders only.
2. In order to get the 270 votes needed to win presidency, a candidate looks towards the "safe" states of their political party, then goes after as many of the swing states as they can hit.
3. When no clear winner is chosen, it is up to the House of Representatives to pick the new president.
4. During the 2000 election, Al Gore won the popular vote, and George W. Bush won the electoral vote. This technically meant that George won, and caused criticism of the electoral college because they overrode the choice of the populace
5. The current system of the electoral college is almost good. If the winner-takes-all system were removed, and an actual count of the electoral votes implemented, the system would be much more fair..
More Americans today are satisfied with where the nation stands on acceptance of gays and lesbians, federal taxes, and healthcare availability than were satisfied in 2001. But Americans' satisfaction with the economy has declined.
1. The terror attacks and the dot-com boom changes do explain the changes in public opinion because the relative feelings of safety and economic immunity, i.e. no one will mess with the US, are gone.
2. These results do coincide because the Democrats liberal views fit in with the government doing more to intervene with certain policies, and the conservative Republican views fit into the idea of Conservatives limiting government controls across all fronts, and their "return to the good times" attitude.
3. The Democrats would be more likely to support gun control and penal system reform, while the Republicans would enjoy a cut on the higher income bracket taxes and the loss of gun control laws.
4. The 4% error potential means that the sampling is most likely within 4% of the general popluations overall view. This means the data is not exactly precise, but does give a good ball park idea to work in for the numbers.
