Roosevelt and Taft Split the Republican Party

  • In 1908 TR decides not to run for reelection but uses his popularity to help get his friend William Taft elected

  • Taft passed the Payne Aldrich Tariff, which TR wanted, but did not lower tariffs as much as TR had hoped

  • Taft, also a Progressive, broke up twice as many trusts(monopolies) as TR but allowed some larger trusts to remain

  • He was also the first President to propose a federal income tax (passed later by Wilson)

  • Taft would run as a Republican but neither stood much chance with the Republican vote split
