Summary
This data collection was designed to provide information on the personal and political backgrounds, political attitudes, and relevant behavior of party leaders. The data center on the Sanford Commission, a group of Democratic party leaders who were appointed by the National Committee Chairs to draft the party's basic charter, or constitution, and on the delegates to the 1974 Democratic Mid-Term Conference who ratified the charter. This dataset, then, permits a comparison of the two levels of party organization leaders. Questions focus on the "representativeness" of the party elites at both levels as well as on their views of the important "reform" provisions included in the charter and their basic concepts of what a national party is and should be. The representation of minorities and females in the process received particular attention. Specific variables include characterization of respondent's political beliefs on the liberal-conservative scale, length of time the respondent had been active in the Democratic party, and the respondent's opinions on minorities in the party, party unity, national- and local-level party strength, party loyalty, and on issues involved in developing the charter.
