Economic and Demographic Structural Changes
America’s political instability is occurring because of deep, ongoing economic and demographic structural changes that are causing existing voting blocs to regroup and reconsider which issues motivate them and which party they support. As a result, control of the legislative and executive branches keeps shifting back and forth.
Winning Combination of Positions
Today, political parties are struggling to find a winning combination of positions on the challenges that are causing people to change political allegiances - including global trade, immigration, automation, access to health care, and inequality. Once one political party figures out a winning combination of policies that can consistently win them elections, political stability will return.
