After 1,000,000 votes were cast in the Big Ideas Project, the Progressive Change Institute ran a national poll to see whether these ideas are popular with voters.
SHARE THESE NEW POLL RESULTS DURING THE STATE OF THE UNION:
The result? Yes, progressive ideas are super popular! Remember that as you watch the State Of The Union tonight.
Democratic and Independent voters support these ideas by huge margins — in some cases by 8-to-1 or 6-to-1. In many cases, even Republicans voters support big progressive ideas!
President Obama will propose some big ideas tonight in his State of the Union, and there will be a battle to set the agenda — with Republicans trying to squash progressive ideas.
By sharing the message that progressive ideas are popular, we can keep taxing the rich, debt-free college, and infrastructure jobs alive in the national debate — and force Republicans to play defense.
The conversation does not stop here.
At meetings this week, members of Congress will see these poll results and learn about the top 20 Big Ideas.
Then, progressive allies will work with members of Congress to push big progressive ideas into the center of the national debate in 2015 and 2016.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
