The conclusion of this report states the following:
Thus, along with a new demography and a new geography, we have a new policy agenda,
a notably progressive agenda, that is emerging. This new agenda is clearly consistent with
the bold plans and priorities laid out so far by the Obama administration. That does not
mean, however, the administration will necessarily have an easy time implementing these
plans. Conservatives will vigorously oppose these plans at every turn. And among the
public, conservative arguments about government and government programs still remain
considerable strength, as the new Progressive Studies Program report on the State of
American Political Ideology clearly illustrates.

But at this point in our history, progressive arguments are in the ascendancy. Combined
with the continuing demographic and geographic changes tilting our country in a progres-
sive direction, these trends should take America down a very diferent road than has been
traveled in the last eight years. A new progressive America is on the rise.
