Marking the one year anniversary of the Democratic take-over in Congress, Stan Greenberg and James Carville of Democracy Corps take a look at how the public views the two parties today, as well as who should carry the mantle of change in the elections next year.

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.

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.
