Presidential Election Slogans
Sometimes the only way to survive politics is with humor
An American Election Tradition - Presidential Political Campaign Slogans
Every 4 years Americans vote in nationwide elections to elect the USA's President. The person chosen by the voters serves four years in the office of President of the United States (POTUS) as the nation's Commander in Chief, the highest government official in the country.
Presidential campaign slogans express in a few words the main political issues designed to elect the candidate and defeat opponents. A few campaign slogan themes resurface time and again with slight variations - Change is one recurring theme that's an integral part of Presidential election campaigns.
Some slogans (or paraphrased versions) have become part of the American English language lexicon: "a chicken in every pot ...", "don't change horses in midstream".
But do presidential campaign slogans really have any impact on voters, or are they just a clever regurgitation of what political strategists think the voters want to hear?
You decide ... and don't forget to vote for your preferred candidate in the next presidential election!
