I created this PowerPoint to go along with my AP US Government and Politics lecture on Party Identification. The YouTube video lecture is available online. Here is the summary of the goals of this lecture:

In the United States, we have a two party system, but many American voters identify themselves as Independent. Are Independents truly independent? In what ways do they participate in the two party system? Furthermore, what factors influence party identification? What prompts someone to identify as a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent?

Mr. Richey, an AP Government teacher, will answer these questions in this lecture on Party Identification. Please subscribe for more lectures in AP Government, AP US History, and AP European History!
