The Hunger Games is an annual competition in the country of Panem between 24 tributes inside an arena. We compared the Hunger Games to elections in the United States. Choose a presidential election since 1950 and tell the story of America’s ‘Hunger Games. Please include the following:

A)  Describe the primary election campaign – who were the front-runners for each party and what issues did these candidates run on and why did they beat out the others in their respective party?

The front-runners for the 1952 presidential elections were between the Republican candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson who run under the Democratic party. Dwight Eisenhower was popular in the republican party for his active participation in World War 2. He was also a charismatic leader who amassed support from his fellow party members. Eisenhower advocated for issues such as inflation, education and his intentions to end the Korean war. Adlai Stevenson came from an affluent family with a history in politics. At the time, he seemed like an odd choice for a presidential candidate, but he was an intellectual and could articulate his thoughts effectively. His popularity quickly rose and he won the party’s preliminaries.

  

B)  Find at least one campaign advertisement for each of the candidates that ran in the general election

Eisenhower put up a campaign advertisement that soon became very popular. It was called ‘Ike for President’. It had a catchy tune and the words were branded on campaign badges, t-shirts and even license plates. That made it more memorable and hence effective in his campaigns.

(I want the name of the ad) and tell me which ad you feel is the most effective and why. 

C)  How many electoral votes did each candidate get? 

Eisenhower won by 442 votes while Stevenson had 89 votes.

D)  Did the candidate that won the Electoral College also win the popular vote? 

Yes.

E)  Tell me how you, as an individual, can get involved in the electoral process – give me some websites of places you can go to get involved.

·        One can learn more about their state’s voting laws. This would help one better understand how voting is done and gain more insight into the overall electoral process. The “Fair Elections Center” provides an insight into each State’s electoral laws.

·        One could also make a voting plan and actively remind their peers to vote. Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp, just to name a few, can be instrumental in creating awareness and mobilizing voters.
