National survey of 1,001 2008 voters conducted June 19-22, 2010. This tracking is for Democracy Corps' polling at the end of June.  While these results were released publicly, we thought it would be helpful for progressive leaders to stare at the results - particularly the stability over the last three months. It should move them to battle more intensely race-by-race - and push the national leaders to a different frame for this election.

With the recovery barely visible and Democrats still behind on the economy, progressives should not seek a mandate based on their performance, but on their advocacy for ordinary people versus Wall Street and on where they want to take the country, compared to the Republicans.  Democratic candidates should run as outsiders and independents that battle to change Washington.  They should show their passion for jobs, the economy and middle class. **Note: Questions 66 through 69 had the data for 'second statement strongly' and 'second statement somewhat' reversed. This was corrected June 28, 2010.
