African American Presidential & Congressional Voting Behavior: 1868-1908

Abstract:

When The American Voter appeared in 1960 with its psychological definition of partisanship, academics had a poll-based research tool to capture the dimensions of this individual level concept. However, Professor V.O. Key, Jr., through the five editions of his political party textbook, taught emerging party scholars that insights into partisanship could be learned at the group level by looking at two factors: (1) major historical events and (2) analyses of aggregate election data and cartography. These are still an effective investigatory approaches for analyzing the political partisanship of groups in their formative years. Relying on Key's techniques, this paper begins its analysis with the Military Reconstruction Acts that made African American party behavior possible in 1867 and allowed this group, for the very first time, to vote in national elections. Using recently under covered aggregate election data as well as public policy data, we will determine “when,” “where” and "how" this party behavior was formed and follow it through to the disenfranchisement period. The innovative attempt to reconstruct this evolution will seek an empirically based group portrait of racial political partisanship.
