The political effectiveness of interest groups varies according to their organizational resources and level of political interest. Well-organized interest groups with well-defined political interests tend to be politically more effective in promoting their interests. Many other groups are well organized but largely uninterested in politics. Still other groups are poorly organized and politically uninterested.
