Two reports from the Center examine the new progressive era now sweeping the country—Senior Fellow Ruy Teixeira’s “New Progressive America” and Senior Fellow John Halpin’s “The State of American Political Ideology, 2009.” Teixeira and Halpin map in detail the changing face of American political thought over the past several decades.

The interactive maps below develop in detail the findings of Teixeira’s report. Click through the maps to see how progressive or conservative your country, your state, and your county are.
