Political strategy is a technique used by politicians to achieve an objective. Usually, politicians will use a political strategy while running in an election, such as a presidential election. The idea is to form the strategy in a way that is friendly to the voters and supports the popular opinion on various political policies. In other words, politicians will organize their speeches to make sure they say things that people want to hear. That way, the voters will be encouraged to vote for that politician because it looks like they’re on the side of the people.
In American politics, the two biggest political groups are Democrats and Republicans. Politicians in each group try to cater to their own political base. Republicans are known for being right-wing conservatives who are pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, and believe in the traditional values of America. Democrats are liberals who believe in making changes which give people of all backgrounds the same civil rights as everyone else. As we progress further into the 21st century, liberal values seem to be gaining more ground in American politics. This means Republicans are going to have to rethink their own political policies if they ever want to win more elections again and put a Republican in the White House.
We have seen a huge trend in America towards accepting gay marriage, legalized marijuana, LGBT rights, interracial marriage, and many other controversial stances. In the old days, only a minority of people supported these issues. Now they are supported by a majority of Americans, which means politicians of any party need to show acceptance towards them or else they’ll likely not get elected by the voters. If politicians remain conservative, the only elections they’ll likely win are local elections in counties, cities, and states that are predominately conservative. But on a national scale, they won’t stand a chance without a new political strategy.
The future of political strategy could mean the total transformation of the Republican Party. We are already seeing the disaster that current Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is doing to the party. After Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election, the Republican Party tried to fix the problems in their party and use new strategies that would make their party more appealing to minorities. But with Donald Trump as their latest nominee, this just set them back another 4 years or possibly longer. If he loses the election, then you will probably see a complete remodeling of the party which distances itself as far as possible from people like Donald Trump.
