The left has certainly had an impact on the current political atmosphere, with its divisive tactics deepening the divide between people, creating static identities, and fostering a sense of competition. This has led to a surge in extremism. However, the main cause of this decline is the Republican Party's transformation. A document that classifies more than 1000 political parties from 163 countries by ideology and tactics reveals that the current Republican Party is much more similar to authoritarian populist parties such as Fidesz (Hungarian Civic Alliance of Hungary) and the Justice and Development Party of Turkey than to the main conservative parties, such as the Christian Democratic Union of Germany or the Conservative Party of Canada.
In order to reach out to younger voters, the Central Colorado Political Party has implemented a number of strategies.
