Recognition of the institutional role of the political parties seemed to confirm the unrepresentative nature of American politics: the issues over which the parties differed appeared to offer nothing toward an understanding of the American experience. 26 JONATHAN ATKINS Not all were willing to concede the hollowness of the Jacksonian era. Another strain in the literature took seriously the rhetoric that politicians used to attract votes. These historians argued that the parties' appeals presented neither the description of reality that Schlesinger assumed nor the ``claptrap'' that McCormick saw, but a window into the ideology or ``worldview'' of a party's adherents.

Utilizing the quantitative and statistical techniques employed by the new social history, Benson presented a close analysis of politics in New York between 1815 and 1844 that reaffirmed Hofstadter's and Hammond's emphasis on the similarities between the Whig and Democratic parties, though he acknowledged that the parties' policies reflected ``competing concepts'' of ``positive versus negative liberalism'' (Benson, 1961: 86).
