      More conservatism

    • D.

      Reform

    Correct Answer
    D. Reform
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "reform" because the results of the 1912 election indicated that the majority of people desired change and improvements in the political system. They were looking for progressive reforms and a break from the traditional conservative policies. This is evident from the rise and popularity of the Bull Moose Party, which was founded by Theodore Roosevelt and advocated for progressive reforms. The Republican Party, on the other hand, represented more conservative ideals and did not align with the desire for change expressed by the people in this election.

    • A.

      Social reform

    • B.

      Political reform

    • C.

      Economic stability

    • D.

      Sufficient federal revenue

    Correct Answer
    A. Social reform
    Explanation
    Wilson's progressivism was limited by his failure to institute social reform. This means that although Wilson aimed to bring about positive changes in society, he was unable to effectively implement policies or initiatives that would address social issues and improve the overall well-being of the population. This limitation hindered Wilson's ability to fully achieve his progressive goals and make significant advancements in areas such as labor rights, women's suffrage, and racial equality. Without meaningful social reform, Wilson's progressivism remained incomplete and fell short of its intended impact.
