On Mandates, Realignments, and the 1984 Presidential Election
Everett Carll Ladd analyzes the 1984 presidential election as a massive electoral endorsement of the incumbent arrived at early and firmly. Looking beneath the election's immediate context, Ladd sees a slowly unfolding contemporary realignment that differs fundamentally from its New Deal predecessor because of the prominent part played by dealignment -- the weakening of voter ties to any party.
