With this support, the party has grown in strength; however, the republican comprises of the older whiter more rural and evangelical voters. The republicans face a shrinking electorate creating a less serious political landscape of the country (2).
Although the democrats have a demographic strength, they still have democratic weaknesses (3). The economic distress facing a larger area of America and the inability of the Obama administration to provide a lasting solution to this predicament have led a large population of the Americans to doubt the leadership of the Obama administration.

The country’s leadership has changed hands between the two parties, and as a result, there has been clear ideological and policy agenda demarcations that have been drawn by the two parties’ leadership any time they occupy the White House.
Indeed, it would hardly be an exaggeration were one to claim that the one's theory is the antithesis of the other's.
