PAD 510 Week 11 Discussion 1 & 2

• While this class was interesting, I learned a lot of new things. I learned about the official actors, unofficial actors and interest groups. According to the book, interest groups are important to the policy process because the power of individuals is greatly magnified when they form groups (134). I never really paid attention that was the main factors in a policy. If it interests me I would listen to it. If it was someone that I did not care for I just tuned out.
• Second made me realize what and who can influence a policy. Learning that the media plays a big part in the decision making of society when it comes time to voting. Because of this class I paid more attention to the news and what was being said on the presidential race. Now that I have taken this class I will pay a lot more attention to politics
