Even though Roosevelt and Wilson were both supportive of the progressive movement, they ran for President under two completely different parties, and this was not their only difference. Woodrow Wilson, the former president of Princeton University, was the son of a minister and was soft-spoken. He was a quiet, intellectual man who had a distinguished education behind him, attending Princeton, then Johns Hopkins University where he earned his PhD in history. Wilson’s political aspirations afforded him a landslide victory in the 1912 election for President with 42 percent of the popular vote. His “New Freedom” platform included lower tariffs, a national income tax, a Federal Reserve System and antitrust laws.
This is done so as to maximise the candidate’s potential vote and to appeal to as wide a range of voters as possible in the November elections. Balancing the ticket is seen as an important part of the election process and getting the combination right can make or break campaigns chances of success. Candidates who have successfully balanced the ticket in the past include President J.F. Kennedy in 1960 when he selected Lyndon Johnson as his running mate. Despite the reservations of many this proved to be a masterstroke; Johnson was older and experienced with 24 years in the senate.
Madison and the other 56 delegates gathered in Philadelphia in May 1787. They planned to amend the Articles of Confederation. They ended up creating a new constitution, and Madison became the chief recorder of information. He had previously helped create Virginia’s constitution, thus he understood the process of creating a constitution more than the other delegates who didn’t have as much experience. Madison strongly encouraged a strong central government.
Amidst excessive political television advertisements and larger-than-life billboard signs, Election Day brings forth the major topics of concerns of the American public. Voters ultimately end up choosing the candidate who they believe will have the solution to all of the nation’s problems. Not only do voters look for the “man with the plan” they also vote based upon the candidates’ prior political experience and success, as well the candidates’ view for the nation’s future. President Obama should be elected as president of the United States because he possesses quality leadership skills, political experience and success, has a clear vision for America’s future, has communicated a plan for solving the economic crises of the nation, and firmly

From the time of the Revolutionary War this country has gained a government, laws and freedoms. George Washington’s bravery and intelligence led him to great victory. Defeating the British in the Revolutionary War made it possible to become our own country and decide how that country would be run. It was due to Washington’s leadership as a general that we defeated the British; because of that victory Washington was elected the first president of the Unites States. Washington served as president for two terms, during which he accomplished many new things.
Newspapers have shown to be a huge influence in the run up to general elections. In 1992, The Sun newspaper backed the Conservative Party who went on to win that General Election. An article which is still talked about today was one which appeared on the front page of the paper reading ‘If Kinnock (the, then, Labour leader) wins today will the last person to leave Britain please turn out the lights’. This headline alone suggested a huge backing for the Conservative Party. ‘The Sun wot won it’ is a notorious headline that appeared in the newspaper just after the results of the election.
There are several reasons as to why Lloyd George won the general election in 1918 such as his personal popularity, the success of the wartime coalition government in winning the war, the increased number of votes from the public and David Lloyd Georges decisions and promises made during the election campaign. Lloyd Georges personal popularity was mainly based on his achievements of leading the country successfully through the Great War after the collapse of Asquith's government. Although Lloyd George was a liberal himself, he became head of the coalition government, mainly of unionists or conservatives with Liberals and Labours support. He was increasingly seen as having the necessary energy to drive and achieve victory becoming the 'man who won the war'. The 1918 election subsequently became known as the coupon election in reference to the signed letter of endorsement that selected coalition candidates received from Lloyd George and the conservative leader Andrew Bonar Law.
Why this Leader was successful What made President Franklin Roosevelt a successful leader was that he had so many styles that was unique and capable in accomplishing tasks as president of the United States. Roosevelt had gained the attention of the Americans with his democratic leadership style. “A democratic leader is one that is primarily concern with human relations and teamwork, communication that is open and usually two-way, and creates a spirit of collaboration with joint effort that results in a staff satisfaction” (Sullivan, 2009, p. 46). President Roosevelt had these and more to accomplish the goals he set out to do. His charismatic style allowed him to connect with the Americans, especially during the Great Depression.
