Partisanship in the Ohio House of Representatives, 1900-1911: An analysis of roll-call voting
History and Philosophy
Analyzes partisan voting in roll-call votes in the Ohio House of Representatives between 1900 and 1911. Partisanship was a significant factor in a majority of the roll calls, with Democrats maintaining slightly greater party cohesion. Republicans tended to support government stances on drinking and other moral issues, while Democrats were more receptive to increasing government oversight of commercial enterprise. While Republicans were generally more receptive to increases in taxes during this period, Democrats were generally far more fiscally conservative.
