- Undertakers of various public positions including the president of the United States are all selected through competitive elections, and participation of voters is the basis of the normal operation of competitive elections. Political parties of the United States usually launch political mobilization by taking advantage of widespread resentment in society, to win as many ballots as possible. In order to make the mobilization much more targeted, political parties would usually divide themselves from enemies, so as to confirm the “targets” of resentment in the political mobilization. Based on the effective demarcation, political parties would also construct contents of political mobilization through issues related to the daily lives and political symbolism, to capture the target of resentment of common voters. In conclusion, political mobilization of competitive elections in the United States features resentment, and developing countries should keep alert to the introduction of competitive election.
