• Many are calling it the Biden Boom.  2021 was a big year for the US economy.  Come join us for two events in the next week which will look at the strong economic performance of the US economy under Joe Biden, and the Democrats more broadly. 

  • In a new memo about the current political landscape and the 2022 elections, Simon offers three reasons why, despite Biden's current polling dip, the 2022 mid-terms are likely to be much more competitive than conventional wisdom holds right now.   

  • Since the debate over the President's post-ARP agenda began, the President's approval rating has dropped almost 15 points, endangering Dem 2022 election prospects.  It is time now for all Democrats to come together and end this debilitating, rancerous period.

  • We have just posted the latest recording of With Democrats Things Get Better. 

    Come watch - it will leave you uplifted, and ready to engage in the big economic debate the Americans Job Plan has kicked off. 

  • This page has links to previous episodes of our NDN Talks series about American politics. You can now find our recent discussions with Reps. DelBene and Gallego, Zamaan Qureshi, Norm Ornstein and Adam Posen.

Rob Shapiro has published a new must read in the Washington Monthly - "It's A Biden Boom - And No One Has Noticed Yet."

The newly signed infrastructure legislation is a remarkable set of investments in the young people of America, and will make their lives, all of their lives, better.  It is important that they come to understand that in the days ahead. 

Simon Rosenberg // Thu, September 16

An early version of a possible Dem election narrative has begun to emerge - Dems tackle the big challenges, GOP too radical and extreme to once again trust with power.

Georgia McLean // Thu, September 2

The Supreme Court's Texas Roe decision is so shocking and crazy that Democrats have no choice now to make the dangerous radicalization of the GOP central to the conversation they are having with the American people. 

Simon Rosenberg // Sat, August 21

In a new political memo, Simon reviews recent polling data and finds rising fears over delta, and growing support in the public for aggressive steps to stop its spread.  The President should seize the moment and launch a stepped up campaign to defeat COVID once and for all.

Simon Rosenberg // Mon, May 3

In the first 100 days we've learned that Joe Biden understands the challenges America faces, and has offered detailed, concrete plans for how to address them.
