Three's a crowd : the dynamic of third parties, Ross Perot, & Republican resurgence by Ronald Rapoport( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For those wanting someone to blame for the Republican resurgence that began with the 1994 congressional elections, Rapoport and Stone have an answer: blame the third-party presidential candidacies of H. Ross Perot in 1992 and 1996. They argue that successful third parties at the presidential level have the opportunity to have a substantial impact on the two-party system. The common analogy is that a third party is like a bee: it stings and then dies. The sting hurts one of the major parties. If a third party has a large and identifiable issue constituency, ensuring the major parties' bid for the support of its members, and if the party that 'wins' the third-party supporters is changed, then the 'dynamic of third parties' has contributed to the continued evolution of the American party system. Third parties, as the authors note, appear only when there is unhappiness with one or both of the two major parties. The authors have produced a near-mountain of empirical evidence to support their dynamic of third-parties theory. Summing up: Recommended. General readers, lower-division undergraduates through faculty."--W.K. Hall, Bradley University -- Choice, October 2006

This data collection provides information on party activist involvement in the presidential nomination process. Surveys of caucus attendees and convention delegates were initially conducted in 1980 at the state conventions in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Maine, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Delegates from both parties were polled on a variety of issues, including their opinions on candidate qualities, such as record of achievement, moral character, performance on television, knowledge of foreign policy, and most important quality for a candidate. In addition, information was gathered on the party position held by the respondent, degree and type of party participation, opinions on state and national leaders, reasons for being involved in the presidential nomination process, choice for presidential candidate, and membership in other organizations. In 1984, surveys were distributed at the Democratic state conventions in Iowa and Virginia. In 1988, delegates to both the Democratic and Republican state conventions in Iowa and Virginia were polled. Caucus attendees of both parties also completed surveys in 1984 and 1988 in Iowa, Michigan, and Virginia.

2 editions published in 1999 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey of a national sample of callers to the H. Ross Perot 1-800-number telephone bank queried respondents regarding the 1992 presidential campaign and election, their level of involvement in candidate campaigns, and their stance on a range of political and social issues. The data were collected in two waves, with the first survey fielded in early September 1992, after Perot had dropped out of the presidential race on July 16, 1992, and the second survey fielded following the November 3, 1992, presidential and general election. A series of questions addressed the current and former campaigns of President George Bush, Vice President Dan Quayle, Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, Tennessee Senator Al Gore, Reform Party founder Ross Perot, retired Vice Admiral James Stockdale, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan, Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey, former California Governor Jerry Brown, former Massachusetts Senator Paul Tsongas, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, and Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen. Respondents were asked for their overall opinions of each of these candidates. They were also asked whether they had in the past or would in the future actively campaign for the candidates, make financial contributions to their campaign funds, and/or encourage others to volunteer for the campaigns. Respondents' views were also sought on abortion, affirmative action, national health insurance, a balanced budget, limits on foreign imports, government regulation of pollution, decreased United States involvement in foreign affairs, term limits, a federal gas tax, and Social Security benefits. Respondents surveyed after the November election were asked additional questions regarding voter choice and and the outcome of the general election. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, race, political party, political orie ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR02809
