About This Lesson

Named in the nineteenth century after the act of a politician giving a campaign speech on top of a sawed-off tree stump, a stump speech is a standard, consistent message delivered several times a week to different audiences. The need for a stump speech stems from a desire for candidates to keep their message consistent with their political platform. When a politician writes a stump speech, he or she usually discusses their credentials, identifies their platform, compares him or herself to other candidates, and attempts to unify the electorate under a specific purpose.
