The third unit in the AP Gov course explores the US political process. It begins with political socialization, or the way that young people acquire their political ideas and outlook. This unit also looks at the historical development and functioning of political parties, interest groups, and the media. The heart of the unit focuses on voter behavior and the process of elections, especially the race for the White House.
