About This Report


Source: US House Of Representatives, BMI vetoes the bill, the legislature can override his or her veto with a two-thirds majority of all the voting members of Congress. Constitutionally, only a simple majority in each chamber of congress is needed to pass a bill. ...However, over the years redistricting practices have made most districts relatively uncompetitive across party lines, vastly increasing the partisanship of each district. This often leads to a heightened state of political polarisation in the lower house, with each rep- resentative frequently far more worried about being challenged on the grounds of partisan purity during a primary campaign than on a lack of legislative achievement or bipartisan compromise in the general election. Following the landslide ---- elections, Republicans hold --- seats in the House of Representatives, the most since the ------- congress, and maintain a comfortable margin against the --- needed for a simple majority. As a result, Democratic initiatives stand virtually no chance of gaining any traction in the chamber, and only the relatively few areas which have both President Obama s and Republican support will move forward for the remainder of the president s term in office.

...Texas Governor Rick Perry, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz are the candidates most likely to break through to the upper tier. There is a substantial amount of diversity of opinion on the Republican side, particularly on issues of immigration, foreign policy, and education. ...Due to this rather unusual method of electing a president, the concerns of swing states , those with a large number of electoral votes which could vote for either a Democrat or Republican, are given much more weight than other issues. In recent years, swing states have become slightly more Democratic-leaning due to demographic change (as minority voters have historically sided with the Democrats), and as a result, the electoral college will likely put Republicans at a slight structural disadvantage in future presidential elections. However, we believe that this Electoral College effect, sometimes called the blue wall in the US media (a reference to the Democratic Party s unofficial colour), has been overstated, and pales in comparison to broad appeal of the candidates themselves. ...
