Think about how your parents’ party identifications have affected your own choice of party? Is there a similarity between the party choices of your parents and you? What or who has had the greatest impact on your view of political parties? According to your religious affiliation, ethnicity, gender, residence, and social class, what party would they expect to be more inclined to support?
Your answer need not disclose the political affiliation of you or your parents. This is simply an opportunity to reflect on this relationship and to demonstrate an understanding of which sociodemographic groups align with each party.
