Recent poll findings by a liberal research firm led by Stan Greenberg, A Democratic Party operative, offered the following:


  • “Voters in the developed world are turning away from Democrats, Socialists, liberals and progressives.”

  • “Voters feel ever more estranged from government—and they associate Democrats with government.”
  • “If they are to win trust, and votes, Democrats must show they are as determined as the Tea Party movement to change the rules of the game.”
  • “This distrust of government and politicians is unfolding as a full-blown crisis of legitimacy [and] sidelines Democrats and liberalism.”
