Politically speaking, we have at present an interesting phenomenon in Washington. Not since the 1920s has the two-party system been so evenly balanced with the Presidency in the hands of the democrats and Congress in the hands of the Republicans. This phenomenon is the result of a critical mass of American voters who, beginning in the 1960s, believed that straight-ticket voting, the prevailing pattern in our previous national history, was foolish, self-limiting and almost anti-American. Authors V. Lance Tarrance and Walter De Vries in their first book, The Ticket-Splitter (1972), identified this new model of political behavior. Now the authors have taken this analysis further in their new book, Checked & Balanced, where they describe how ticket-splitting has evolved into government-splitting and how this pattern of power sharing has forced both Republican and Democrats into what they call "competitive cooperation."
-Publisher

Details a new era in American politics characterized by "shared control" or "divided government" as a result of split-ticket voting.
