National Security a Winning Issue for Democrats
Wednesday, November 14 2007

Despite recent coverage of shifting attitudes toward the war in Iraq and the Democratic Congress, the latest public polls show the country's political environment remains fundamentally unchanged, with President Bush and Republicans in Congress still deeply unpopular and Democrats maintaining a significant electoral advantage at the congressional level one year before the next election. Broad disapproval of Congress as an institution reflects the massive change dynamic still driving the electorate and is not directed at the new Democratic leadership.

Children's Health Care (S-CHIP) Battle a Threat to Republicans
Wednesday, October 03 2007

As President Bush issued the fourth veto of his presidency over the bipartisan bill that would have dramatically expanded children's health, the biggest factor is the rising concern with the economy. In the latest Democracy Corps survey, we examined a full battery of economic worries, but health care tops everything else, rising dramatically in the most recent period. Health care can emerge as the central economic battle of the 2008 election cycle. That is reflected in more and more people choosing health care as the top problem overall making it the top domestic concern. Voters concerns with health care remain primarily in the rising costs as well as in being sure they will always have access to quality care.

Public Waiting for Congressional Democrats to Take Action
Wednesday, September 12 2007

Three new surveys released immediately prior to the sixth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the progress reports of Gen. Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker show that the country's political environment remains essentially unchanged - bad news for the White House and congressional Republicans. Most important to the current moment, attitudes on Iraq are unmoved and voters indicate little receptivity to reports of progress from Petraeus and the Bush administration. The wealth of data on Iraq in these new polls reveals a great deal about public attitudes on Iraq and how inflexible they are. Key findings include a clear sense that the surge is not working, skepticism of the Petraeus report, unwavering support for withdrawal and a clear deadline, and a clear belief that the war in Iraq is not making us safer.
