US Political Figures

The US political system is defined by the US’s status as a federal republic. Sovereignty is shared amongst the executive branch, legislative branch, and the judicial branch. The President is the head of the executive branch. The legislative branch is composed of Congress, the Senate and House of Representatives. The judicial branch includes the federal court system. Two political parties have dominated US politics since the American civil war, and are formally present in both the executive and legislative branches of the system.  The US is a very powerful country, and for that reason its political decisions affect the rest of the world. The US presidential election is one of the most documented political events globally.

How do US politics work?

The US government is divided into three branches – the executive branch (the president and his cabinet), the legislative branch (the US Congress), and the judiciary branch (the courts). The separation of powers was implemented to establish a system of check and balances to prevent an individual or group from gaining too much control and power. The US Constitution is what provides the separation of powers.

The GOP was founded in 1854 by opponents of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which allowed for the expansion of slavery. Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president.
