Question description

Part 1

The Rise of Conservatism

Background: Many historians have characterized the period from the Great Depression until the 1970s as a period when liberal politics were dominant. During this period, only Eisenhower interrupted the Democratic hold on the White House. The U.S. Congress remained under Democratic control for the entire period with the exception of two brief two-year periods in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Republicans only finally regained control of the Senate in 1980 and of the House of Representatives in 1994. As such, many Americans look at the 1970s as the beginning of the rise of conservatism.
