Factors That Lead to Party Identification
A person’s loyalty to or preference for one political party is called party identification. When people identify with a party, they usually agree with the party’s stance on a few major issues and give little weight to its stance on issues they consider minor or secondary. An individual’s party identification tends to be life long unless there is a major shift in a party’s agenda or problems with its leadership. (Video is narrated with slides and speeches.)
