PPI Releases New National Survey: America’s Resilient Center and the Road to 2020

November 14, 2018 by TWN Staff

Today, the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) released a new national survey, “America’s Resilient Center and the Road to 2020.” In issuing the survey’s findings PPI said, “The next two years present a do-or-die chance for progressive leaders to build upon and solidify their governing majority in Congress and, potentially, to recapture the White House from an unpopular president whose destructive policies have already badly undermined the country’s democratic institutions. The progressive left, impatient for change, has embraced the notion that “bold” ideas must also always imagine the most expansive possible role for government. Our survey suggests that voters would disagree with this approach. Rather, “radical pragmatism” might be the better bet for delivering the results that Americans crave in a way that rings true to their values.”
