USA Today just published Keith Allred’s piece describing the most important headlines from CommonSense American’s early infrastructure poll results. He writes,
“Only by maintaining the fiction that the other side is more extreme than they really are can the far right and the far left stoke fear and anger.”
- Feedback from Key Senators: We’ve shared the early results with about a dozen of the key senators leading the bipartisan effort to pass a commonsense infrastructure legislation. They have really appreciated our work and have asked us to keep them updated as more results come in.
- The rest of the Senate: We’re now sharing our results more broadly with the Senate, including the USA Today piece.
- Onto the House: The prospects that a sound infrastructure bill passes the Senate are not certain but promising at this moment. If and when it does pass the Senate, it will go to the House of Representatives were it appears to face a stiffer challenge from both conservatives and liberals. Our infrastructure brief is a hot item in the House. One congressman was passing out copies to colleagues on the House floor. The brief has generated real interest in what Americans like you think once they’ve had a chance to become informed on the issue. We’ve promised to get back to them with our early results, which we’re now starting to do.
