Political Ideology





The role of political ideology

The political ideology has the power and effect on most of the national decision. Political ideology is set of coherent views on policy issues and the role of government in the nations globally (Stone, 2012). The role of government on political issues has affected some national decision on the hiring of personnel in various public entities and some private ones as well. Most of the time I have witnessed the government and other prominent people taking most of the public affairs and running around with them according to the position they have been given by the people. Therefore, when you perform a survey on the most of the government institutions in the states, you will find out that the ratio of individuals who supports the government in control is higher than the other, let me use the opposition side (Jost, Federico & Napier, 2009).

A research study was carried out in the year 2016 on several faculties available in the states. The result was published on Econ Journal Watch which considered the voter registration of the faculty members in the 40 universities (Richardson & Martinez, 2009). It was found that the ratio of the democrats and the republicans had different numbers in terms which have been employed in the departments. The ratio was 11 Democrats to one Republican in the departments. The result shows that the political divide still has the power and mandate to influence who is to be hired in which position and institution in the state. Most of the people in the top governmental position always want their political leaders to have the mantle and take power since the other party will directly affect their employment status.
