The Common Ground of the American People

Can Republicans and Democrats agree on anything? Absolutely. Common Ground Solutions joined our partners at Voice of the People to unveil a new report showing something extraordinary: majorities of both Republicans and Democrats agree on nearly 150 key policy positions across more than a dozen policy areas. Based on in-depth surveys of more than 80,000 Americans conducted by the Program for Public Consultation at the University of Maryland, the research suggests that Americans are ready to support elected representatives who cross party lines to start solving problems. Check out the video below of our nationwide release event, featuring CNN’s senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju, Amy Dacey, executive director of American University’s Sine Institute of Policy & Politics, and Kristie De Peña, vice president for policy and director of immigration at the Niskanen Center.
