About Resurgent

Resurgent Republic gauges public opinion about policy proposals under consideration by the White House and Congress. Through a steady stream of national polls and focus groups, Resurgent Republic helps policy makers, think tanks, interest groups and others advocate for policies that are consistent with conservative principles, and to oppose policies that stifle job creation, weaken national security and undermine values that have made America a great country.

Who We Are

Resurgent Republic is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to shaping the debate over the proper role of government. We are an independent, not-for-profit organization modeled on Democracy Corps, which has made important contributions to the public debate from the left and has proven to be a valuable resource for labor unions, environmentalists, and liberal Congressional leaders.

Resurgent Republic seeks to replicate on the right the success Democracy Corps has enjoyed on the left. As Democracy Corps does, Resurgent Republic makes survey and focus group results publicly available.  We promote conservative free market principles such as lower taxes and economic growth, and support strong national defense policies. Resurgent Republic has become a valuable resource for the general public, policy makers, Congressional leaders and others that are aligned with us on these important issues.
