National Group Governance in Presidential Elections
This chapter describes a shared social purpose that is designated as national group governance. This shared purpose develops from social communications about the election by many people, including those who do not vote. Each person who talks to a friend about the forthcoming election contributes to the national group governance and thereby influences the choices by the voters.
