NDN's Main Programmatic Areas

NDN provides analysis on a wide range of governance and electoral issues that are at the forefront of American politics today. Below you can find the seven key program areas that together make up the brunt of NDN's work. 

Defeating COVID - NDN has published several analyses on the health, political, and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. You can find all of this work here.

Countering Illiberalism's Rise - NDN's writing on the need for all political organizations and parties to more forcefully challenge the rising tide of far-right illiberalism, supported and aided by Putin's Russia, in the West today.

Election and Political Analysis - Election analysis has been one of NDN's most influential areas of work over the past 16 years. 

With Democrats Things Get Better - Most Fridays we offer our live, data rich presentation, With Democrats Things Get BetterWith Dems does a deep dive on the performance of the two political parties over the past generation of American politics, and clearly shows that with Democrats things better, Republicans, not so much.

Protecting Our Elections and Disinformation - In the 2018 election cycle, NDN's Simon Rosenberg built and oversaw the countering disinformation operation at the DCCC - the first ever of its kind at a national party committee.
