It remains to be seen whether Clinton can respond to the new social agenda, despite the deficit and an unwillingness to commit the administration to policies akin to those of the Great Society. In a sense, the Family Support Act of 1988 provided the United States with a new paradigm in welfare policy to the extent that it combined an emphasis on self-help and willingness to work with welfare. What remains unclear is how far such an approach can really touch the deepest pockets of poverty in the United States or cope with the scale of its problems.
Perot and the Challenge to Two-party Politics So far we have considered the election as though it were politics as usual, but in one important respect it was not. The election symbolized the most serious challenge to two-party politics for 80 years. Just after the New Hampshire Primary in late February 1992, the idiosyncratic, opinionated, and cranky Texas billionaire Ross Perot announced on Larry King Live that he would run as an independent candidate, if placed on the ballot in 50 states. The declaration seemed almost off-the-cuff, accidental, unpremeditated.
This lead was exaggerated by the winner-take-all system, so Republicans swept the board with 416 out of 537 electoral college votes. Based on normal vote analysis, the odds seemed stacked on the return of George Bush in 1992, with a predictable and unexciting contest. This pattern of Democratic failure can be attributed to a series of particular circumstances: the unpopularity of successive Democratic contenders, the lack of experience of their campaign strategists, factionalism within the Democratic Party.
