Democracy Corps has conducted its first national poll of the 2020 cycle and the more you stare at the data, the more you conclude that voters are intent on making history again. This memorandum is focused on the degree of engagement, the consolidation of Democrats, the landslide 2020 margins among the base, and the white working class, split on gender lines.

Unsurprisingly, our first survey of 2019, conducted during the government shutdown, shows those saying the country is on the wrong track up sharply since the November election. This is a stunning start to the new year. Since Trump took office, voters were only more pessimistic in October 2017 when the Republicans made their last heave to repeal ‘Obamacare.’ All politicians and parties have taken a hit, but with hints of a very different electoral moment.

 
The Democratic Wave is Now Apparent
Tuesday, November 27 2018

On behalf of Women’s Voices, Women Vote Action FundDemocracy Corps has conducted an ‘Election Night’ survey of 1,250 registered and 2018 voters nationally, including of 900 voters in 15 battleground states in 2018 and 2020. This post-election study shows that Democrats were able to create a powerful brew that produced major gains in the House and states, despite apportioned districts rigged to be unassailable and election laws engineered to suppress minority votes. It was powered by shifts in vote and turnout among women and the diverse Rising American Electorate. Outside of the RAE, the Democrats may have permanently changed their base and the voters open to them, particularly when Donald Trump leads an anti-immigrant Republican Party. In the face of his divisive campaign, parts of rural and working class America peeled off. The Democratic wave exposed President Trump’s vulnerability and suggests a less polarized country. Democrats still need to run stronger in the rural areas that President Trump won in a landslide and with the working class men and women at the core of his base, but that task is for another day.

Democrats won big embracing strong message on Trump tax cuts & economy
Friday, November 16 2018

Many vulnerable Republicans hoped that the GDP and jobs numbers and their signature legislative accomplishment, the tax cut, would persuade voters to keep them in office. Instead, Democrats won with a strong message that the Trump economy is failing to raise wages and that the Republican tax law gives huge benefits to the rich, drives up the deficit and puts Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and investments in education at risk. This conclusion is bolstered by an ‘Election Night’ survey conducted by the American Federation of Teachers and Democracy Corps.

The Rising American Electorate & White Working Class Strike Back
Friday, November 09 2018

The Democrats had a very big election on Tuesday, with a 7-point national congressional margin that allowed them to pick up 35 House seats, to elect a record-breaking 100 women to the House, and to flip six statehouses and seven governors’ mansions. Democrats now occupy nearly half of the 50 governors’ mansions, including winning all of the races in the Blue Wall states that allowed Donald Trump to win the Electoral College. In winning control of the House, Democrats shifted the congressional margin 10 points on average from 2016 and 21 points in the seats that flipped to the Democrats and pushed turnout to a stunning 48.1 percent and growing, compared to just 36.7 in 2014. 

In order to understand the shifts that changed the landscape and balance of power in the country, Democracy Corps has conducted an ‘Election Night’ survey of 1,250 registered voters and 2018 voters nationally, including 900 voters in 15 battleground states in 2018 and 2020, on behalf of Women's Voices.Women Vote Action Fund. This report lays out the six key elements that came together to produce major gains for Democrats, despite apportioned districts rigged to be unassailable and election laws engineered to suppress minority votes.
