The American Two-Party System

Recommended Posts

This is a topic that comes up from time-to-time in other threads, and I think it's a worthy topic in-and-of-itself. This could be a fairly broad topic about the characteristics of the tribes and coalitions that make up the evolving political landscape, or about things like potential reforms toward proportional representation or different voting systems which might alleviate some problems with the two-party system (or break free of it).

 

Sorry if there's already a topic that encompasses all this stuff. I briefly searched and didn't find one.

Nope, it is not. Most conservatives actually are rooted in math and science. if you look at most professions, most analytical professionals like engineers, accountants, science professionals tend to skew right in their political beliefs. Whereas, more creative types, tend to skew more toward the left.  This is not saying they are Dem or Republican but just that in general, that is the case. There are many scientists who are generally conservative who may not be Republican voters, but they tend to be more conservative in nature.  So to act like scientists and mathematic professionals are not conservative is a false premise.

 

 

 

According to this study of campaign contribution data, that's not really true. Look at the Science & Math fields.
