Democrats Urged to Avoid 'Economic Recovery' Talk


Democrats are being advised not to talk about an "economic recovery" in their election campaigns.

In an election year memo, Stan Greenberg and James Carville, the party's leading political strategists, call the topic a political loser.

They pointed out that in head-to-head polling, Republicans win the issue by simply pointing out the Obama administration has failed to get the economy moving in its six years in office.

The memo also advises the Democratic groups, Democracy Corps and Women's Voices Women Vote Action Fund, to push an economic agenda that "puts working women first" to boost voter turnout among their target groups.
