The second half of the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth centuries in
Western Europe mark a period of suffrage expansion, the development of mass party
organization, and effective incorporation of the newly enfranchised citizenry into
political life. The resulting realignments of the interwar period form a backdrop
against which the current discussion of realignment takes place; yet this very discus-
sion begs the question of stability as well as the dynamics of the preceding realign-
ment. Path models of these processes in Britain between 1885 and 1950 show the
fundamentals of realignment emerged in an earlier period, 1885-1910, crystallized in
the 1918 election with suffrage expansion, and remained stable until 1945-1950, when
the first signs of weakening appeared. Latent variable partial least squares (LVPLS)
constructs dynamic path models of the mobilization, partisan realignment, and social
bases of politics. The results are tested further with maximum likelihood (ML)
