Democrats need to learn again how to talk to the voters who brought them success in 2006 and 2008. The Party continues to slide toward what will likely prove the most challenging election cycle since 1994.'s average of national surveys has Republicans leading 46 to 41 percent in the generic congressional ballot. This most recent Democracy Corps/Women's Voices. Women's Vote Action Fund survey shows Republicans with an 7-point margin among likely voters. Swing voters like Independents and blue-collar whites who have moved to the Republicans will be difficult to reclaim over the next seven weeks. Progressives need to find support elsewhere.

This will be a tough election, but fortunately, the unfolding tax issue can work strongly to help Democrats and define the choice in the election.  This is a case where Democrats are strongly aligned with public thinking and priorities.  Only 38 percent favor extending the Bush tax cuts for those over $250,000 - the official position of Republican leaders and candidates.  Clearly messaging around this choice - with Democrats voting for middle class tax cuts, while starting to address the deficit and protecting Social Security, contrasted with Republican candidates who still believe trickle down economics and worsen the deficit.

Voters take the long view, seeing the need for both a commitment to a 21st century economy and long-term strategies to reduce the deficit. These are complimentary, not exclusive goals. Progressives need to show they are serious about the deficits, but once they do, voters turn to them, not conservatives, for the right spending priorities and answers.

These shifts coincide with news in July of slower job growth, persistently high unemployment and weaker than expected 2nd quarter GNP growth.
