    This is a good article. However, one thing we must be careful NOT to do is subdivide issues into pre-defined and somewhat arbitrary categories. Many liberal support certain economic policies because they believe in economic justice, clearly a moral value.
    Instead of taking the conventional pollsters data at face value and subdividing issues into “economics” “terrorism” “moral values,” etc., a more productive path would be to consider how we can create a coherent and consistent progressive worldview and then communicate that VISION to the electorate. I think this is the path to a progressive governing majority.
