Contours of the New Electorate
Monday, August 13 2007

At important turning points, we like to pause and look at the whole database of surveys conducted by Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner - focusing in particular on the 4,000 interviews conducted during the Summer of 2007. There are big changes here that have an enduring quality, with the opportunity to shape the parties' prospects in 2008.

Bush, Congress Both Near Record Low Approval
Monday, July 16 2007

The latest public polls reveal a political environment whose broad contours remain fixed -- a deeply unpopular president, broad pessimism about the direction of the country and the political process, a significant electoral advantage for Democrats, and a growing demand to bring our troops home from a war in Iraq that is viewed as a mistake by an increasingly large majority of Americans. Within this context, we see President Bush's approval marks reaching new lows, but even his approval now exceeds that of the Congress. Americans still view Democrats more favorably and hold out some optimism for the Democratic majority in Congress, but they believe that Democrats have failed to deliver the change they promised. Democrats maintain a double-digit margin in a generic congressional match-up, but this advantage is now more a reflection of Republican weakness than Democratic strength.

Good start for Democrats, but much left to do
Monday, April 23 2007

As the 100-day mark of the new Democratic Congress has passed and a series of events from Iraq to Imus and Gonzales to Virginia Tech have dominated the headlines, the basic framework of the national political environment remains unchanged -- broad pessimism for the country's direction, record disapproval of Bush and the Republicans, and strong political and electoral advantages for Democrats in Congress. This month's polls, however, do offer some important insight into attitudes toward the Democratic Congress. Voters remain optimistic about the new majority and prefer them over Bush on all issues - particularly Iraq - while at the same time reminding Democrats that they have not yet delivered the changes they promised and demanding more action on Iraq, immigration, government reform, and the economy.

Bush Still Dropping as Democrats Continue to Ride Election Momentum
Monday, February 05 2007

Despite a prime time address to the nation on Iraq and the annual State of the Union, President Bush's political standing continues to erode in the latest public polls. Iraq is driving both the national political environment and the President's continuing decline in public approval, and not even small but sustained gains in ratings of the economy and consumer confidence have provided any help to Bush. Democrats, on the other hand, have seen public approval spike since the election, and the early success and broad popularity of their legislative agenda has helped to reinforce those gains.
