  • Party organisation
    • Federalism = decentralised government
      • Decentralised government = decentralised parties
    • 1800's and 1900's - state/local politics bigger than national politics
      • Little ideological cohesion between states
    • Factors leading to stronger national parties
      • Adoption of new tech (e.g. computerised adverts to target people at home)
      • Parties became more ideologically cohesive and partisan = centralised message
      • National parties have new systems to train state/local party candidates
        • Legal advice, financial advice, national adverts
    • More top down (bottom up previously)
    • Party leaders = little say (unlike Britain)
