Social Democrats USA

The Social Democrats USA (SDUSA) is a social democratic political party more closely affiliated as being centrist[?]. It is the successor of the Socialist Party of America. It is a member of Socialist International.

It was formed when the Independent Socialist League[?] (ISL) gained control of the old Socialist Party of America and renamed it in 1973. As a result, two new groups splintered off — the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (which would become the Democratic Socialists of America) and the newly reconstituted Socialist Party USA.

The SDUSA aligns itself with the free-trade wing of the Democratic Party and has in the past supported an interventionist foreign policy.

The collapse of most communist countries in 1990-1991 has undermined socialism in the U.S., as many Americans barely differentiate between the two political systems. Membership in the SDUSA is thought to be around just 100.
