The New Progressive Majority

• The data shows that America is far more progressive on most issues than conventional wisdom indicates. On cultural wedge issues, the trend is even further to the left.

• Conservatives are losing badly to progressives on social issues like gay and reproductive rights. This serves as a bellwether for losing the battle on many other issues in the future as well.

• Polling over time reveals a growing desire in the majority of Americans for increased government action towards: a strong safety net, income inequality, increased minimum wage, raising taxes on the rich and corporations, cutting defense spending, gun control, protecting the environment, alternative energy, and health care.
