If you look at the question under the democratic-primary tag and sort by date, then you will notice that most of the questions were asked in 2019 and 2020. During that time the Republicans had an incumbent President, so the Republican primaries in that election period were mostly a formality. Which explains why there was little interest in that topic. I am ...

The currency tag should be used for such questions as: Politics of placing an image on currency, or Revaluation of currency (exchange rates), or The use of a particular currency for international trade. The money tag should be used for such questions as: Budgets, or Campaign limits, or In general, where the question is not specific to currency. The ...

Not everybody consumes Stack Exchange content the same way. Some people may want to subscribe to tag uyghurs and be notified by email whenever a new question on the topic is posted. Sure, searching for uyghurs is:question on Politics SE would accomplish the same. However, if one is interested in, say, 100 topics, who has the time to perform such searches 100 ...

Normally I'd agree with you that we shouldn't have a tag that's a perfect subset of another tag. We certainly could replace it with a combination of president and election. However, I think we should make an exception here because of how common questions about (usually US) Presidential Elections are. There are currently 566 questions in presidential-election,...

Another factor is the different dynamic of the 2016 Democratic primary vs the 2016 Republican Primary. Once it became clear the Hilary Clinton would win the Democratic nomination, there was a lot of discussion from Sanders supporters (who skew young and online-savvy) about how Sanders still win, and how the mechanism of the Democratic primary was unfair. ...

My suggestion is that the two tags are too similar and currency should be made a synonym of money It should be noted that the wiki information for both tags refer to each other. Currency: Questions about a system of money in general use in a particular country. Also consider the tag [money]. Money: Questions related to the political aspect of money. Also ...

To JamesK's point, I don't like tags that are supersets of another tag. By this definition, every question tagged with "war" should also be tagged with "armed-conflict" and finding questions about "non-war armed conflicts" would involve doing a search for armed-conflict but NOT war, I think this touches on an important point. ...

You can create tags on this site after reaching 150 reputation. You can do this simply by adding the new tag to a question - it will be created automatically. To add a description to your tag, you can visit the tag's 'About' page. In your case, you have created the chinese-communist-party tag, and you can find this tag's information here. Any registered user ...

Insofar as someone might use the 'corruption' tag to essentially try to make an end-run around proving someone guilty of corruption (which seems to be why the guidance says to use 'scandal' instead), I would hope that the question would get moderated into oblivion. Having a tag require that querents police their own questions seems needlessly redundant. In ...

Nothing in the definition of the word scandal implies that an event is only alleged or unconfirmed nor does corruption require confirmation before the word can be used in regular conversation. A corruption investigation being a case in point. So it seems poor use of English to distinguish between verified events and unconfirmed events using two words that ...

These should not be merged together as you can get more specific with the presidential-election tag and it is nice to have that difference. There are differences between the two that are nice to keep seperate.

Thanks to @JJJ, this issue has been resolved. Questions have been retagged as needed and the synonym request was approved. Thanks!

There don't seem to be any objections, and it seems sensible to me, so I went ahead and created the synonym.
