New Poll Serves As Jumping Off Point for National Dialogue
Americans Disagree on the Top National Goals for the Country. A new poll by Ipsos finds Americans differ on what should be our top policy goals and aspirations for the future.
But there is Much Stronger Agreement on Individual and Community Values and Goals. Regardless of party, age, gender, race, income, or geographic location – Americans are encouragingly unified on certain individual values, on goals for themselves and their families, and on what defines our country.
This Provides a Starting Point for a National Dialogue. The poll only scratches the surface on our commonalities and differences. Going forward, FixUS is facilitating a National Dialogue on Common Values, Goals, and Aspirations, where participants will have the opportunity to join small group discussions and focus groups intended to dig deeper on these issues and strive toward informing a bottom-up path forward for the country. Our hope is that engaging in open dialogue with each other as individuals, and focusing on our common values, goals, and aspirations may serve as a bridge to close our gaps at the national level.
