This chapter examines the electoral performance of social democratic parties in western Europe and finds a pattern of steady, if uneven, decline. The authors argue that this may be true of all mainstream political parties but that is scarce consolation for a movement committed to long-term, progressive change.

Keywords:   Elections, Social democratic parties’ share of vote since 1945, Western European politics
