The 1948 United States presidential election in Minnesota took place on November 2, 1948, in Minnesota as part of the 1948 United States presidential election. The Democratic candidate, incumbent President Harry S. Truman, who had assumed the presidency following the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945, won the state over New York governor Thomas E. Dewey by a margin of 209,349 votes, or 17.27%. Nationally, the election was the greatest election upset in American history; nearly every prediction forecast that Truman would be defeated by Dewey, but in the end, Truman won the election with 303 electoral votes and a comfortable 4.5% lead over Dewey in the popular vote. The election was the first presidential election since 1932 which did not feature Roosevelt as the Democratic nominee. It was also the last of six presidential elections in which Norman Thomas was the nominee of the Socialist Party of America, and the last presidential election in which the Socialist Party (which was once very ...
The 1996 United States presidential election in Missouri took place on November 5, 1996, as part of the 1996 United States presidential election. Voters chose 11 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president. Missouri was won by President Bill Clinton (D) over Senator Bob Dole (R-KS), with Clinton winning 47.54% to 41.24% by a margin of 6.3%. Billionaire businessman Ross Perot (Reform Party of the United States of America-TX) finished in third, with 10.06% of the popular vote.[1] Since 1904, this state has been carried by the winner of the presidential election, with the exceptions of the elections of 1956, 2008, and 2012 (as of November 2016[update]). This election is the most recent in which Missouri voted for the Democrat as well as the last time that Hickory County, Benton County, Mercer County, Caldwell County, Grundy County, Crawford County, Carroll County, Franklin County, St. Clair County, Livingston County, DeKalb County, Lafayette ...

The odds ratios can be interpreted as follows. Let us first consider the first variable, prepared to vote. When the students score on the preparedness to vote scale increases by a unit value, the chance that the student will name a political party increases by a value of 1.995, or roughly 100%, controlling for the other variables in the model. At the lower end of the figure, when information from parents increases by one unit value, the odds ratio of that person naming a political party increases by a value of 1.096, or roughly 9.6%. In other words, the increase is significant, but not by very much. An odds ratio of 1 would indicate that the variable in question is not related to an increase in the likelihood of naming a political party. All of the variables reported in Figure 8 have an odds ratio significantly greater than one.. Thus from Figure 8, we see the characteristics which are related to an increase the likelihood that a student named a political party, controlling for the other ...

Because of the demise of traditional society, conservatism as a political ideology is irrelevant to contemporary politics. Discuss.. The demise of traditional society has certain implications in relation to politics and conservatism as a political ideology. It implies that there has been a shift in traditional values, both in society and concerning the way in which politics is conducted in terms of what approach is taken based on ones political persuasion. Individualism has become prominent in our society and the promotion of ones own advancement is paramount in a modern democratic state. This has proven to produce difficulties for the traditional conservatives in promoting core beliefs such as an emphasis on inevitable inequality and hierarchical preferences. It is therefore imperative to determine how society has changed; in order to establish levels of compatibility conservatism has with this contemporary society. It may be that conservatism has the ability to adapt and change to suit the ...
Scholars have raised doubts about the ability of political parties to fulfil their traditional role as transmission belts between citizens and legislators in the EU. We discuss how the different institutional environment of the EU affects the assumptions and predictions of theories of political parties developed for the national context and discuss how political parties can influence EU legislative decision-making. We distinguish between partisan effects in the electoral and legislative arena, and argue for a clear distinction between the effects of national parties, national party delegations and transnational party groups when studying EU party politics. The empirical literature shows that, whereas parties play a role in most institutions, they are not always the dominant players, and their effect varies both across and within these institutions.. ...
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rallying Democrats to prepare for a once-in-a-century election scenario requiring Congress to decide the outcome of the presidential race if neither Democrat Joe Biden nor President Donald Trump wins outright.. In a campaign letter to colleagues, Pelosi told her fellow House Democrats that recent comments by Trump demonstrate that he could ask the House to decide the race if it is not clear which of the two candidates had received the minimum 270 Electoral College votes in the Nov. 3 presidential election needed to gain office.. Trump repeatedly has questioned the security of mail-in ballots, which could take a while to tabulate given the high number of voters likely to use them this year due to the pandemic.. Democrats fear that the president could attempt to have the count of those votes cut short in an attempt to have the election outcome determined by the House.. Under the U.S. Constitution, the House would vote by state delegation to ...
This article presents a research which compared the individual and cumulative empirical impacts of growth-decline, form of government, position and state on selected political processes in rural counties in the U.S. In order to accomplish this objective, it is necessary to measure variation in political processes; to identify the effects which growth-decline, form of government and as appropriate, type of position have on the variance and mean level of rural county political processes; and to weigh and compare the relative impact of each independent variable on variation in political processes. Data from this study are derived from a survey questionnaire sent to country officials in rural counties in the states of Arizona, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota and Utah. The results indicate that the rural county political processes are predetermined by situational factors outside the control of the decision makers. Growth or decline, structure, state or office singly or combined, do ...

Political parties are essential institutions of democracy. By competing in elections parties offer citizens a choice in governance, and while in opposition they can hold governments accountable. When citizens join political parties, volunteer their time, donate money and vote for their leaders, they are exercising their basic democratic rights. Participation of citizens in political parties offers unique benefits, including opportunities to influence policy choices, choose and engage political leaders, and run for office.
Yes, Bill Clinton ASKED Russia to interfere in a US presidential election by Jon Rappoport July 18, 2017 Press outlets are now reminding us that President Bill Clinton interfered in the 1996 Russia election that brought Boris Yeltsin to power for a second term. This is by way of saying,
Four years after Russias annexation of Crimea, it is more than obvious that the peninsula has been forcibly integrated into the contemporary Russian identity. All achievements claimed by Moscow since March 2014 are linked to the reunification of Crimea with Russia. Precisely because of that, the date of the 2018 Russian presidential election was chosen to be March 18. It is intended to symbolically send a message to the Russian electorate that March 18, 2014, was the day when Russia became great again. From the very outset, Vladimir Putin has taken full responsibility for the Crimean operation in 2014. Thus, March 18 is, in a way, the day when the president demonstrated his strong will. It is not merely a coincidence that Putin visited Crimea on March 14 (Kremlin.ru, March 14) and may even be going to Sevastopol on Election Day (Sevoborona.info, March 11).. The upcoming election raises two main critical questions. First, is the matter of legitimacy of the election, and second-the role of ...
Not too long ago, Deschutes County Republicans enjoyed a nearly 10,000-voter edge over Democrats. Republicans running for county commissioner trounced their opponents by 2-to-1 margins from the early 1990s through 2008. But voter registration data show the gap between Democrats and Republicans has narrowed by about half. Bends population boom has brought people from all over the country to Deschutes County, while more voters have shed either major party label. And the 2008 presidential election,
Today is the Labor Day holiday in the USA, and the traditional start of the Presidential election campaign. For 2 years, the candidates have been rushing around the country in pursuit of money, endorsements and primary election wins. Now they enter the final stage, when they can finally focus on winning the Presidency itself.. The result is likely to have significance not only for the USA, but also for the world. The US has underpinned global governance since the end of World War 2, but now seems to be moving away from this role, at a time when both Russia and China are becoming resurgent on the global stage.. The rationale for US global engagement was that the previous policy of disengagement after WW1 - when it refused to join the League of Nations, and adopted protectionism with the Smoot/Hawley Tariff Act - had clearly not worked. After WW2, it decided to instead adopt a strategy of engagement.. This years election could therefore prove to be as momentous as those of 1960 and 1980. They ...

The 1896 presidential election between William Jennings Bryan and William McKinley has gained new salience in the wake of the 2016 contest. We provide the first systematic analysis of voting patterns in 1896, combining county-level returns with economic, financial, demographic and climatological data. Specifically, we consider the economic concerns of the Populists with falling crop prices, high interest rates and railroad monopolies. We show that Bryan did well where mortgage interest rates were high, railroad penetration was low, and crop prices had declined by most over the previous decade. Using our estimates, we show that further declines in crop prices or increases in interest rates would have been enough to tip the Electoral College in Bryans favor. But to change the outcome, the additional fall in crop prices would have had to be large. The counterfactual increase in interest rates appears, at first blush, to have been more modest. But where previous authors have argued that interest ...

In this study, we demonstrate two main findings. First, Canadas most populous province experienced a decline in the sex ratio at birth 4 months after the 2016 US presidential election, with subsequent recovery in the 5 months thereafter. This time course of changes in the sex ratio matches that which has been previously described after adverse societal events, such as terrorist attacks. Second, the transient decline in the overall proportion of boys to girls born in Ontario in March 2017 was observed in politically liberal-leaning jurisdictions but not in conservative-leaning regions of the province. Taken together, these data suggest that the unanticipated outcome of the 2016 US presidential election was associated with a temporary reduction in the sex ratio at birth in Canada that may have related to its perception as an adverse societal event by the politically liberal-leaning population.. In humans, despite relative balance in the proportion of spermatozoa carrying a Y-chromosome to those ...

JURIST] Kenyas Supreme Court [Official website] ruled 4-2 Friday to invalidate [materials] the recent presidential election. President Uhuru Kenyatta was reelected after winning 54 percent of the votes in the recent election, which was held on August 8. The petition [text, PDF], filed on August 18 by Raila Odinga, who won 44 percent of the vote, alleged that the election failed to comply with several of the requirements established under Kenyas constitution. It also contends that the 2.6 percent of votes that were rejected was deserving of an inquiry. The Supreme Court found that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission failed to conduct the election in the manner set in the Constitution, but did not find any wrong doing from Kenyatta. The new vote must be held within 60 days. This is the first time that a court in Africa invalidated an election due to irregularities in voting.. The election has sparked violent protests, resulting [JURIST report] in at least 24 people dead, ...
The Census breaks down the election by voting groups. Young Minnesota voters, ages 18 to 25, voted at the second-highest rate in the nation at 57 percent, but that was down from 59 percent in the 2008 election. Mississippi had the highest young voter turnout rate with 62 percent. Wisconsin was third with 53 percent. White non-Hispanics had the highest turnout rate, 74 percent, among racial and ethnic groups in Minnesota, significantly eclipsing all other groups but slightly lower than the previous presidential election. Asians, however, made huge gains in the state, improving their turnout rate from 34 percent in 2008 to 56 percent last year. That gave Minnesota Asians the highest voting rate among the 23 states where enough Asians voted for a statistically significant analysis. One reason is that, on the ground in the past few years, community organizations have become so much more civically engaged, said Sia Her, executive director of the state Council on Asian-Pacific Minnesotans.

Among Ayn Rands services to philosophy was her lucid identification of the hierarchy of knowledge, with such fundamentals as metaphysics and epistemology underlying and implying theories of ethics, politics, and art. The agony of the Age of Politics is that its disputes, its wars, its experiments with millions of individual human lives never can be resolved on the level of politics. Politics is a branch of philosophy that rests upon and is derived from metaphysics (our view of the nature of man), epistemology (our view of reason and the requirements of knowledge), and ethics (our view of the standard for judging our actions). Fundamental disputes in politics cannot be resolved without reference to philosophy. No demonstrations of the productivity of free markets, the failures of the command economy, or the misery of the socialist regime will resolve the disagreements of the age of politics. Collectivism, socialism on the Soviet or Nazi model, proceeds inescapably from the morality of ...

Topeka The Republican wave was no more evident than in the Kansas House, and that could mean a big lurch to the right in state government.. Before Tuesdays election, the GOP held a 76-49 advantage in the House. Now it has a 92-33 advantage. That success goes along with a Republican sweep of statewide races from governor on down. It was not a pretty night for Democrats, House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said Wednesday.. It was a history-making election.. The last time the House Republican margin was so lopsided was in 1954 when the GOP held a 105-20 advantage. And the last time Republicans swept the statewide races was 1964.. The Democratic losses in the House means the end of a bipartisan majority of Democrats and moderate Republicans that has fought for school funding, and passed a 1-cent state sales tax increase earlier this year to fend off what supporters said would have been devastating cuts to education, social services and public safety.. Its gone, Davis said of the ...
In 2006, tensions between the national police and the armed forces resulted in open conflict between the two institutions, a breakdown of law and order and the displacement of more than 150,000 people. Political and security efforts to resolve conflict and to bring stability continued and despite attacks on both the President and the Prime Minister in 2008, the country gradually recovered from the crisis.. In 2012, Presidential and Parliamentary elections were held peacefully and fairly and the last UN peacekeeping mission since the 1999 referendum drew down at the end of 2012, taking Timor-Leste off the agenda of the UN Security Council..

The registered voters for the presidential election were 743,150 (48.3% women) and 71.16% turnout was recorded. It was the first elections conducted by the government without significant ...
Have to hand it to Trump. Somehow he sensed a path to victory. We know he didnt use data or anything, because he doesnt trust statistics. Apparently Trump just held mass rallies at the places where he thought the most people would show up. Zero data or voter mobilization. Everyone was mocking him for campaigning in Clintons northern firewall. Using pure animalistic instinct, he discovered whites in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania were willing to switch parties, and he dragged the Republicans kicking and screaming over the finish line. Trump did amazing with people on the bottom half compared to his predecessors, Clinton did amazing with people on the top half compared to her predecessors. They still trended the traditional rich/poor divide, but the shift was staggering.[140] Clinton won a ton of hyper-rich districts that havent been Dem since FDR like Orange County. The big shock was Pennsylvania going for Trump,[141][142] despite the numerous terrible things he said about the ...

Cambridge Core - Political Economy - The Political Economy of Pension Policy Reversal in Post-Communist Countries - by Sarah Wilson Sokhey
As Poland further cements their socially conservative policies, they will have the next 3 years to reign until the next parliamentary elections take place in late 2023. Expert Dr. Angelos Chryssogelos summarized quite nicely that The government is now free to pursue its agenda by controlling almost all levers of powers in the Polish political system, although Dudas close margin of victory shows that its dominance should not be taken for granted for too long; an economic recession of infighting in the governing camp may undermine it in the coming years.. ...
The re-articulation of China into the global economy since December 1978 has led to a tremendous influx of foreign capital during the past two decades. Constrained by the limited domestic market and encouraged by home-country government, transnational corporations from Singapore are regionalising increasingly into the Asia Pacific region. To date, a significant amount of Singaporean investments abroad has gone to China. Based on personal interviews with parent companies in Singapore and their subsidiaries and/or affiliates in China, this paper aims to examine the political economy of Singaporean investments in China. Specifically, I argue that successful cross-border operations of Singaporean firms are embedded in dense networks of social and political relationships. These relationships provide the political leverage and strategic resources to enable the establishment of Singaporean firms in China. This establishment, however, is contingent on blending with local politics in China through which ...

LEE: I spoke with many World War II vets and some Tuskegee Airmen and they all felt they helped to make President Barack Obama possible. He included the Tuskegee Airmen in the Inaugural Parade. Its a connection. Its much easier to be patriotic when you receive all the rights of an American citizen. The million African-Americans who served in World War II were the truest patriots. At that time Black people were still considered second-class citizens and being lynched. But despite that, these soldiers risked their lives for democracy, hoping it would come. Even though we arent all the way there, were much closer with Barack being the 44th President of these United States.. ESSENCE.COM: Definitely. And what was your favorite moment of President Obamas inauguration? Are you planning any projects around his story ...
What information do you get: • Name • Age or DOB • Place of Birth • Political Party What does each give you and not give you? Geography, gender, party http://www.secstate.wa.gov/elections/vrdb/default.aspx If you are a voter, your name, address, political jurisdiction, gender, date of birth, voting record, date of registration, and registration number are public information under state law. RCW 29A.08.710 North Dakota is the only state in the nation without some form of voter registration. It was one of the first states to adopt voter registration and it was the first state to abolish it in 1951. North Dakotas system of voting and lack of voter registration is rooted in its rural character, illustrated by numerous small precincts, where local election boards know most of the voters who enter the polls to vote on Election Day and may detect those who should not be voting in the precinct. Because of North Dakotas unique election system, which does not require voters to register, the ...

Posted on 07/29/2012 12:57:21 PM PDT by bimboeruption. The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year s presidential inauguration. The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia. As the brief explains, the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities. The total amount ordered is about 150 sets of riot helmets, thigh and groin protectors, hard-shell shin guards and other riot gear. Specifically, DHS is looking to obtain: - ...

More than two weeks before Nov. 4, she cast her early ballot for Democratic Sen. Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election at the crowded voting booths in one of Renos oldest malls. There hasnt been a door in this town that hasnt been knocked on, said Rodriquez, high-fiving fellow Democrats from the key swing area of Washoe County, which voted for George W. Bush in 2004 and recently flipped to majority Democratic registration after years of GOP rule. Nevada has prided itself on being free of personal, state and corporate income taxes, but it ranks among the worst states on quality-of-life issues, on health care for seniors, and on other critical indicators from smoking to senior suicides, said banker Matthew Dickson. Mora, 26, a Mexican-born newly naturalized U.S. citizen, is getting ready for another 14-hour day on the campaign trail, knocking on doors and making phone calls to GOP voters, hoping to get them to the polls for the Republican team of Arizona Sen. John McCain and Alaska Gov.
Kenyas Supreme Court has ordered fresh elections be held within 60 days after it found the electoral board committed irregularities during the initial round.. Kenyas electoral commission says it will change personnel and processes to prepare for a new presidential vote after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyattas re-election. Odinga and his supporters argued the August 8 election was hacked to guarantee victory for Kenyatta, who had won a second term with 54 percent of the vote, raking in about 1.4 million more votes than his challenger.. It is the first time in Kenyas history a presidential election result has been cancelled.. Joyous celebrations erupted outside the court and in opposition strongholds after the second term victory of President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared invalid, null and void.. The legal ruling paves the way for a new race for the presidency between Kenyatta and Odinga. In that judgement there are certain things they will give us about errors what happened ...

The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) has played an active role in election cycles in the Dominican Republic for the past three decades. Most recently during the 2012 presidential elections, with the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), IFES worked closely with the Central Electoral Board, political parties and candidates to ensure the improvement of inclusion among persons with disabilities. Furthermore, IFES partnered with La Red Iberoamericana de Personas con Discapacidad Física, a disabled persons organization (DPO) in the Dominican Republic, to raise awareness through public information campaigns, disability rights policy platforms, and leadership trainings.From 2011 to 2014, IFES, in partnership with the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening, worked to break the barriers to full participation in democratic processes in the Dominican Republic. Specifically, this project, entitled
Running ads against reactionary Republican proposals makes more sense than specifically targeting the Tea Party. The Tea Party candidates who have won primaries are now officially Republican candidates. It will do more good to show how extremist the Republicans are as opposed to concentrating on the Tea Parties. Polls show most Americans disagree with the Tea Party and that their support is now dropping, but many voters (including Howard Dean) are still unclear on what the movement actually is.. I dont buy the Democratic objections based upon nationalizing the election. The election has already been nationalized. Running away from the Democratic Party only leaves many voters wondering why they should vote for them. This is especially foolish (other than perhaps in some conservative districts) considering the many successes which the Democrats have had in office, and as polls show a majority of people do prefer Democratic policies over Republican ones. Democrats need to campaign on how they have ...
