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.

One year after the 2006 election when Democrats took control of the House and Senate, Republicans continue to pay the price for the current battles taking place in Congress. Democrats have moved into a stable 51-41 lead in the Congressional vote - bigger than the margin they achieved in 2006 - and are well ahead in the battleground districts. In the latest Democracy Corps memo, Stan Greenberg and James Carville take a look at how the public views the two parties and who should carry the mantle of change in next year's election. We hope you find this report helpful in your work.
