    The democrats were in a huge whole because Truman had little control over the south, they hoped course would change but in 1947 he vetoed the Taft- Hartley law which preserved Union power. Truman's appointment of a liberal civil rights commission convinced Southern conservatives that to reestablish their voice they had to threaten third party action, that is threaten to defeat Truman in 1948. At the Convention, a group of Northern liberals, led by Minneapolis Mayor Hubert Humphrey successfully pushed through a platform – over vigorous Southern opposition – that promoted civil rights for blacks. In his speech promoting the civil rights platform, Humphrey memorably stated that "the time has come for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights! This helped them tremendously in the South. Both candidates agreed

Their main goal was a membercontinuing the policy of a right-wing Democratic splinter groupracial segregation in the 1948 U.S. presidential election organized by Southerners who objected toSouth and the civil rights program of the Democratic Party. The Dixiecrats knew they would not win,Jim Crow laws that sustained it. They elected South Carolina’s Storm Thurmond, they knew that they would win allhad no chance of thewinning because they could not appear on enough state ballots. Their strategy was to take enough Southern States so their goal wasfrom Truman to bringforce the election into a tie at the House of Representatives, where they believed Southern Bargainingcould then extract concessions from either Truman or Dewey on racial issues in exchange for their support. Even if Dewey won, it would show Democrats that they need southern support in order to win themmore presidential elections. This would also weaken the election.

    The 1964 Presidential Election!-Lyndon B. Johnson was in the White house at the time running for his second term, following the assassination of the former President John F. Kennedy.--The election was between two candidates that were polar opposites in their political views. One was a hardcore right-wing Libertarian (Goldwater), the other was a left-wing moderate (Johnson). Goldwater was attempting to win an election with a divided Republican Party against a unified Democratic Party during a time of prosperous economy against the previously winning party. Due to his extreme Libertarian views and his refusal to moderate his views, Goldwater's presidential campaign had suffered from the lack of support from his own party. A popular Republican figure, Nelson Rockefeller, even criticized Goldwater at the Republican National Convention, which was televised. His conservative policical positions and plans were unpopular with the majority of the nation, as the people of the United States had desired a leader that was not so enthusiastic about military advancements since the United States had recently invested much effort and money in the Cold War. Goldwater had also supported the seperation of church and state, which was unhpopular with the Conservative demographic of the nation at the time. Johnson's "Great Society" campaign, which promoted the advancement of social programs effectively captivated the interest of the nation at the time. Throughout Johnson's campaign he had frequently portrayed Goldwater as a dangerous extremist. Johnson had a talent for allowing the media to provide him with more favorable coverage. Goldwater's unsuccessful libertarian gambit in the election of 1964 encouraged the modern conservative movement, as the Republican Party needed to pander to the nation more effectively by having more open-minded views on the nation's various dilemmas.‍The election was between two candidates that were polar opposites in their political views.

Dewey, tried to avoid talking about the major issues during his campaign, But Truman, did the exact opposite. Truman gave hundreds of speeches talking about the major issues saying "do nothing- good for nothing." Truman summoned a special session of Congress in July, 1948, proclaiming that he was offering the legislators an opportunity to enact some of the liberal planks they had proposed in the Republican platform. The results were meager, reinforcing the allegation that Congress did nothing. As Dewey avoided, resting on his reputation as the favorite to win, Truman made one of the greatest comebacks and upsets in American History.

    this day. Turmans predidental years were not as spectacular as his comeback election, but he did face of with the Soviets extremely well. Truman had to have foreign policies as good as our founding fathers had, he detonated the first atomic bomb. He had to deal with the Cold war and the beginning of Communism, the Korean War, Steel and Coal strikes. With all the protection we needed, Truman called for tripling the defense budget, and the globalization and militarization of containment policy whereby the U.S. and its NATO allies would respond militarily to actual Soviet expansion. US troops stabilized Korea and won.

    The
    Spanish American War in 1898,1898- We won this war when Mckinley was in office, so he decided to use this to his advantage. His successes in the war were the main backing of his campaign in 1900, even though it was a brief war that he was not hugely involved in. Bryan criticized these military efforts though, which gained him the support of anti-war people but made him lose some of his supporters who were military advocates.

    or silver standard,standard. America was just beginning to implement a national paper money system into our economy. But, we had to choose between using gold or silver to back the paper money. We were trying to decide which was more stable. Gold was under question because the Klondike Gold Rush was happening at the time so gold prices were all over the place. Mckinely was with the gold standard, Bryan was with silver.
    The
    monopolies in different industries across America- Industry was quickly growing across America and was becoming an important part of our economy. But, in industries such as banking, oil and gold, monopolies were starting. These were bad because they were a threat to our federal government. We had to figure out how to shut down these monopolies without ruining our economy.

    and the Philippines.Philippines- We acquired Cuba and the Philippines from the Spanish after defeating them in the war. These two countries needed help because their governments were flawed and their economies were dead. We needed to figure out the best way to organize these countries. Some people thought that ruling them would be hypocrital because we became a country by breaking off from the British, who were ruling us the same way. Bryan accused Mckinley of supporting this imperialism.

    This is the map of how the electoral college played out during the election of 1900. This map shows how this election played out and how William Mckinley and his Vp teddy roselvelt won by a Landslide margin against the Democrats of William Jennings and Adlai Stevenson. One thing to keep in mind with this map is how the states play out and the geography of the country as a whole. It is clear that the Gadsen purchase and the acquisition of the Arizona and New mexico territories are yet to be counted as part of the country or represented.
