Political parties today focus on the needs and wants of voters in the same way that businesses seek to serve consumers. Demonstrating how British political parties use sophisticated political marketing techniques to gain electoral success, Jennifer Lees-Marshment looks at how they conduct focus groups and opinion polls, then change their behavior and political stances in order to reflect their findings. She analyzes how parties in Britain now attempt to offer a complete product--including their leader, membership rights, and policies--to appeal to a majority of voters, rather than adhering to a political ideology and firm belief system.

Book Description Manchester University Press, UK, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. First Edition. 192 pages. Available Now. Book Description: This work demonstrates how British political parties now have to use sophisticated political marketing techniques in order to gain electoral success. By conducting focus groups and opinion polls, parties attempt to find out what it is that voters want from them - they then change their behaviour and political stance in order to reflect their findings. The summer of 2000 provided classic examples of this type of behaviour in action, with William Hague and Tony Blair sending out conflicting and confusing soundbites in an attempt to capture the popular imagination on issues such as pensions, asylum seekers and the pound. Parties now attempt to offer a complete product - including their leader, membership rights and policy - that will appeal to a majority of voters, rather than being influenced by a political ideology and firm belief system. In 1983 Labour were the classic example of a party that was led by ideology and tried to persuade voters that their way was the right way, whereas new Labour in 1997 is the classic market-oriented party. Political parties today focus on the needs and wants of voters in much the same way that businesses seek to serve their consumers in order to make profits. The title goes on to discuss what this means for democracy - are parties more responsive, voters more critical and is there a greater focus on policy and delivery - is British democracy thriving, or is the fact that there is no longer any ideological standpoint behind the messages of the major parties an affront to the democratic process? : About the Author: Jennifer Lees-Marshment is Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen Size: 23.3 x 15.6 x 2.1 cm. 192 pages.
