The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America Is a Myth.

The media often tell us that Americans are fundamentally conservative. Democratic victories are dismissed as flukes, and we are told that this nation supports a strong military, a government that does not interfere with health care, and free trade.

Yet this report, the product of carefully compiled statistics from the past several decades, proves this story incorrect. The data show that Americans are becoming increasingly progressive on issues across the board. The report includes topics such as:
- the role of the government
- the economy
- social issues
- security
- the environment
- energy
- health care
