Republicans in ResurgenceBy Ramesh Ponnuru | National Review Online | May 4, 2010
A new poll by Resurgent Republic, a conservative group, confirms the trends that other political observers have been seeing: This year’s electorate leans to the right, with most independents seeing eye to eye with Republicans on the major issues. But the survey also includes some warning signs for conservatives.
Republican strategist Ed Gillespie and pollster Whit Ayres founded Resurgent Republic one year ago to do for the Right what James Carville, Stanley Greenberg, and Bob Shrum had done for the Left with Democracy Corps: provide opinion research helpful to the cause and available to the public. Its latest survey of 1,000 likely voters yielded a by-now-familiar picture of the current political scene.
