At President Obama's recent health care summit, Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans breathlessly touted an “average" of recent public polls showing large majorities opposing health care reform. McConnell's polling average was dubious to begin with, but he was also getting well ahead of himself.[i] In fact, a flurry of recent polls show support for health care reform slowly but surely on the rise. A new survey from The Economist/YouGov released yesterday shows majority supporting passage of reform for the first time since December.[ii] Moreover, recent polls that dig deeper than the topline numbers demonstrate even more support for passage of reform, with the most recent Ipsos survey showing a majority of Americans either supporting the current reform option or hoping for an even stronger reform package.

Greenberg: How to Avoid a Repeat of 1994
Thursday, February 18 2010

Tags: 1994 | clinton | Stan Greenberg | The New Republic

In his new essay for The New Republic, Stan Greenberg examines how the current political environment may feel eerily similar to the days when he was in the White House advising President Bill Clinton going into the 1994 midterm elections, which turned disastrous for Democrats. Though things seem grim again today for Democrats, Greenberg outlines the differences and what lessons can be learned to produce a very different outcome.

We've been alerted by our good friends on the conservative side of the political spectrum at Public Opinion Strategies that POS partner Glen Bolger has been posting on a “semi-secret" Democracy Corps poll across the Congressional Battleground and we'd like to take this opportunity to both thank him for taking such an interest in our work and to respond to some of his interpretations of the data. While we do agree with some of what Glen has to say there are other areas where we couldn't disagree more.

The self-identifying conservative Republicans who make up the base of the Republican Party stand a world apart from the rest of America, according to focus groups conducted by Democracy Corps. These base Republican voters dislike Barack Obama to be sure - which is not very surprising as base Democrats had few positive things to say about George Bush - but these voters identify themselves as part of a 'mocked' minority with a set of shared beliefs and knowledge, and commitment to oppose Obama that sets them apart from the majority in the country.

Democracy Corps Senior Adviser Karl Agne discussed the report on MSNBC Morning Meeting on October 19, 2009.
