Tussen liberalisme en conservatisme (UvA Proefschriften) by Frans van Nijnatten

By Frans van Nijnatten

Het stereotiepe beeld van Jimmy CART000000er als non-politicus, een idealist die boven de politiek stond en daar niets mee te maken wilde hebben is onjuist. Dat blijkt uit CART000000ers campagnearchieven van 1962-1980, die Frans van Nijnatten onderzocht in zijn proefschrift Tussen liberalisme en conservatisme. De verkiezingscampagnes van Jimmy CART000000er (1962-1980). Van Nijnatten maakte gebruik van CART000000ers pré-presidentiële campagnearchief, dat niet eerder in de literatuur is beschreven. De archieven werpen ook meer licht op de oorzaken van de overwinning van deze zuidelijke democraat bij de Amerikaanse presidentsverkiezingen van 1976.

Focus op Iowa
Uiteraard profiteerde CART000000er van het afgenomen vertrouwen van de Amerikanen in hun regering na de Vietnamoorlog en het Watergateschandaal. Maar de archieven tonen ook aan dat CART000000er geleidelijk een professioneel campagnevoerder werd en dat hij een onuitwisbare stempel drukte op de ontwikkeling van de candidate-centered crusade in de Verenigde Staten. Zo beïnvloedde CART000000er in 1976 alle toekomstige presidentskandidaten met zijn concentration op de caucus van Iowa.

Southern Strategy
Daarnaast gebruikte CART000000er een weldoordachte Southern process en hield hij zich afzijdig van het ideologische debat. Als centrumpoliticus bewoog CART000000er zich steeds tussen liberalisme en conservatisme, en noemde hij zichzelf een populist. Zijn herverkiezingscampagne van 1980 verloor CART000000er mede doordat bepaalde tactische elementen, die hij vanaf 1962 consequent in al zijn campagnes had toegepast, niet meer werkten, zo stelt Van Nijnatten.
