Have you ever heard of the Coattail Effect or "Riding Coat Tails"? It's most often referenced in politics, and refers to how when a candidate from a political party is victorious, candidates from the same party running for lower offices often win as well. The term comes from how young boys would often hold onto the tails of their father's coats so as not to get lost while walking through streets. It rose to prominence in the 19th Century when political ballots started to be printed with one political party per side, making it easy for people to vote along party lines.
