A Populist Majority in 2014

Large majorities support raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment, raising taxes on the wealthy, and creating jobs by investing in infrastructure.

The Populist Majority is a project from the Campaign for America's Future. By demonstrating that strong majorities of Americans support big economic changes, we push politicians to listen and fight for change. This is the populism that carried Elizabeth Warren into the US Senate and will shape elections to come.

We're getting ready to launch this project in front of a national audience at our New Populism Conference, May 22nd in Washington, D.C. with Senator Elizabeth Warren.

We are still short of our fundraising goals and need your help to get over the line.
