Final Answer

Each of four theoretical traditions in the study of American politics – which can be characterized  as theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy, Economic Elite Domination, and two types of  interest group pluralism, Majoritarian Pluralism and Biased Pluralism – offers different  predictions about which sets of actors have how much influence over public policy: average  citizens; economic elites; and organized interest groups, mass-based or business-oriented.
