So who’s going negative this election? Romney and his outside group allies have run just 27 percent positive ads this campaign, according to Kantar Media.

    The 2012 election should be a referendum between two visions of America. On the left, Obama should say that we’re in a jobs crisis, and that he’s going to do everything in his power to get people back to work — by employing them directly, if need be. On the right, Romney can say that job creation should be left to US companies, despite the fact that those companies are signally failing to increase their payrolls despite their record-high profits. And then the public can choose which side they want to vote for.

    —Politicalprof: This is a comment that only an economist could make. It is political twaddle.

    In the United States, elections are contests between candidates seeking a plurality of votes among those voters who turn out to the polls. They are defined by candidates’ efforts to convince potential and likely voters that the candidate shares most/many of the same political, social, cultural and economic values with those voters. Notably, candidates are happy for lots of people who have conflicting values and goals to fantasize that the candidate shares “their” values and goals.

    That’s how you win.

    If you want a “responsible party” model of governance, you need to dump the US Constitution and create centralized political parties that control who can or cannot run for office under the party label. There are models of such polities out there — Canada or Germany stand as examples that have both strong parties and federalism.

    But in the United States today, with the Constitutional form of government we have, Dr. Salmon’s  comment is nonsense.
