Andrew Levison of the Democratic Strategist reports: Every serious observer and participant in the formulation of Democratic political strategy is familiar with the work of Democracy Corps - the polling and strategy organization founded by Stan Greenberg and James Carville.

Democracy Corps...seeks to measure public attitudes accurately and does not shy away from publishing data that reflects unfavorably on the Dems.
