YFTW: Growing the Youth Vote
Tuesday, May 13 2008

A new "Youth for the Win" survey with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner finds that young voters are on pace to deliver a big Democratic margin in November, but offers two cautions which should drive efforts to engage this group and ensure they deliver. First, while this bloc is solidly Democratic, John McCain is much more popular than Bush or the Republicans; tackling this requires re-branding the Republican nominee as a Republican. Second, the long Democratic nominating process has sapped young voters' enthusiasm; there needs to be major healing after this nomination is settled.

YFTW: The MySpace Election
Monday, May 05 2008

A new survey of young voters, the first in a series of "Youth for the Win" projects, confirms that this emerging group is deeply engaged in the 2008 election. The report, released in cooperation with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, finds that not only will young people vote in record numbers this year -- 54 percent say their likelihood of voting is a 10 on a 10-point scale -- but that the Internet plays a critical role in both how they get their information, and how they participate in the campaign.

A new Democracy Corps survey shows that to capture voters' support on economic issues as they have on health care, Democrats should pursue a strategy that begins with cleaning out the corporate special interests from Washington, and returns focus to the squeezed and disappearing middle class. Focusing on policies that address rising costs and outsourced jobs as the central economic problems, and offering tax cuts as a "for whom" proposition rather than a "for-or-against" will demostrate a an openness to break with convention and gridlock and get things done for the country.

A new national survey from Democracy Corps highlights seven imperatives for Democrats in the ongoing national security debate. To win the battle, the analysis shows they must go on the offense on national security, show Senator McCain's policies to be a continuation of the failed Bush policies, and stress Iraq and America's dependence on foreign oil.

Winning the Immigration Issue
Tuesday, December 18 2007

In their latest strategy memo for Democracy Corps, Stan Greenberg, Al Quinlan, Mark Feierstein, and James Carville offer a progressive approach to illegal immigration that shows Democrats are very serious about getting the problem under control, and solving this problem in ways consistent with America's values. While few issues inspire so much passion as illegal immigration, voters are looking for a solution - after this era of failing on most major problems - that builds on our immigrant tradition.
