Party Ideologies

Most politial parties articulate particular Ideologies, theoretical sets of ideas which overlap with political parties and makes it posssible to compare political parties in different countries, but are not exactly congruent with any one political party, as in the real world it is necessary to make compromises to form coalitions of support that will allow political parties to put candidates in public office.

The theory that the political divisions in the United States is closely associated with differing ideologies of large, geographically compact groups of people is usually discussed as the notion of the Red Blue Divide.
