A new national survey from Democracy Corps highlights seven imperatives for Democrats in the ongoing national security debate. To win the battle, the analysis shows they must go on the offense on national security, show Senator McCain’s policies to be a continuation of the failed Bush policies, and stress Iraq and America’s dependence on foreign oil.
Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner completed a national survey of 1,000 likely voters that focused on national security. The survey, conducted March 25-27, demonstrates that national security issues will play a pivotal role in the 2008 election, and Democrats face major challenges and opportunities in both the presidential and congressional contests.
In their comprehensive analysis of the survey, Stan Greenberg, Jeremy Rosner, and James Carville highlight seven imperatives for Democrats to pursue as they wage the debate over national security in the coming months, including going on offense on national security, showing Senator McCain’s policies to be a continuation of the failed Bush policies, and stressing Iraq and America’s dependence on foreign oil.
