Polling conducted in advance of the 2018 legislative session in key battleground states showed broad support among likely voters for policies that provide working families with economic security. In particular, the polling found high levels of support for expanded healthcare coverage and paid family and medical leave policies, investment in K-12 education and teacher salaries, expanded funding to make child care more affordable, and expanded overtime pay to cover more workers. This provides a strong contrast to the agenda pursued by the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress.
