ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the political failure of the Democrat Party in the U.S. to launch a political offensive in the U.S. Senate elections in November 1982. Primary reasons cited are the inability of the Republicans to make the jobs issue into a political agenda, major groups like the elderly resist being politically mobilized by them, and their inability to politicize the issues related to the U.S. economy. There is a general mindset among the citizens of the states that will hold the elections in favor of U.S. Republican President Ronald Reagan.
