How often is a political party platform written?
American political parties are organized on a national, state, and local basis. Every four years, the parties hold a national convention to nominate a presidential and vice presidential candidate. They also meet to approve a party platform of issues and positions upon which the candidates will run. A party platform is a set of principles, goals, and strategies designed to address pressing political issues.

There are several reasons why third parties generally fail in the USA. For a start the two main parties appeal to such a broad range of voters that they cater for most issues …the voters represent. Occasionally, however, a third party proposes an idea that sits well with voters, gaining them more support. When this occurs the major parties simply adopt this 'idea' into their ideology meaning that the third party potentially disintegrates. All parties aim to get a candidate into the presidency, correct? Well, as third parties seem to always fail, people believe that it is better to form various coalitions within a party, behind one person (the president) rather than becoming an independent candidate. This way people can have more opportunity for political influence. A key issue also is the fact that they struggle to gain any form of solid support and in turn can not raise the funs required to effectively campaign. The campaign cost for the 2008 election was said to have bypassed the $5 billion mark. State regulations also act as a barrier for third party production and advancement. Each state has a different rule/regulation as to what allows a political party to be on the ballot paper. Arkansas requires a grouping of only 50 people to form a 'party'. However, states like North Carolina require a grouping of over 100,000 people, which almost an impossible obstacle for any third party. There is also the whole 'wasted vote' view. As the state races use a 'first past the post' voting system, a candidate needs to win the popular vote in order to gain the electoral college votes for that state. Third parties simply do not have the materials to campaign on a national level and can not possibly hope to achieve the popular vote. This has occurred since the beginning of the Constitution and has lead to view from the voters that any vote for a third party will be a wasted one as they have very little chance of gaining political influence.
