The Suburbs Project
What is the key to victory in 2020? The suburbs. In 2016, Donald Trump became President because he won the suburbs. In 2018, Democrats carried the House because they won the suburbs. As go the suburbs in 2020, so goes the White House, Senate and House.
Third Way launched a new project focused on understanding the complexity of the suburbs and how to build on recent progressive gains in these communities that tip the electoral scales. We are focusing public opinion research on these pivotal voters—with an eye to the battleground states that determine majorities—to understand how they are viewing the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, and the political landscape, as well as the messages and issues that are resonating with them.
