Abstract

This paper examines interactions of six modern presidents with the conservative coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats in Congress, covering the years 1953 to 1980. Presidential party is shown to be strongly related to rates of policy agreement. The effect of coalition size is considered. Congress generally influences a president's program more than the president influences the conservatives' policy, and both these influences are primarily negative.
