I would include the Democrats and Republicans core groups with statistics and possibly reasons for this as well, however more than one reason.

Could mention the rise of partisan dealignment + rational choice model - importance of independent in swing states etc.

Mention about different realignment - New Deal Coalition, Break up of Solid South, Southern Strategy + Reagan Democrats.

Then reenergised voters - E.g. Trump done this effectively + Bush done this with campiagn slogans on social issues.

However cannot always rely on core vote E.g. mid term election differential turnout - led to divided government - Young voters+ minorities did not turnout well in 2010 or 2014

Hey guys, im a bit late here and this may not be seen in time but has anyone got any predictions for what will come up- specifically electoral college and voting behaviour? I was thinking myself that for electoral college it could be something about national conventions or moneys influence on elections? And for voting behaviour something about core voting blocs or primacy/recency question? Any answers would be appreciated, thanks
