ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the conflict within the Democrats in the U.S. following the issue of majority rules. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt quietly broke the veto-hold of the South over the rest of the party. In 1948, South attempted to dictate the platform and lead a spontaneous and victorious drive for a strong civil-rights plank in the platform. As the 1952 Democratic convention assembled, the South posed the dominant problem. In the context with American liberalism, the adoption of a progressive platform and the liberal alliance could ensure Democratic victory.
