December 1978
National Review Bulletin;12/1/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 48, pB177
This article analyzes the possible implications of the results of this year's Congressional elections in the U.S. Political analysts are currently engaged in predicting the fate of several noted politicians, including Republican Governor Jim Thompson of Illinois. Based on this year's ballot, it is analyzed that nature of the voters' favors has changed, along with the potential scope and size of the government. The voters, in these elections, were exhorted to consider issues of national importance. According to analysts, the nature of the constituent has changed as well. Nearly two thousand political action committees have accordingly sprung into existence to exert pressure on this or that legislator.
