Smart Politics is a nonprofit organizationdedicated to building the progressive movement by transforming the way voters, activists, & candidates communicate.
How is Smart Politics different?
Smart Politics is unique among existing progressive organizations. Instead of stoking polarization with wedge issues to turn out votes, we help progressives shift public opinion through productive and persuasive dialogue in our homes, on social media, and on the campaign trail.
And what you can do about it. There he goes again. The other night I was over at my mom's house and got sucked into watching MSNBC. The talking heads were bemoaning Donald Trump's latest outrage, speculating about how to respond, and openly questioning whether anything anyone does can make a difference.
There's nothing like a constitutional crisis to spice up a national holiday. As Americans gather for our annual Thanksgiving feast, many are sharpening their rhetorical knives while others are preparing to bury their heads in the mashed potatoes. The dueling impulses to fight or flee discussion of impeachment are understandable, especially if your family differs over politics.
What does Smart Politics believe?
All peopleare capable of changing their minds about politics. Unfortunately, progressives often communicate in ways that reinforce prior beliefs rather than helping others understand our point of view. To transform the nation, we must learn how to share our message in a way everyone can hear.
