  •  I would help to focus on "interests" (0+ / 0-)

    The logical place to start is economic interests of the poor and middle classes and I think this is supported by the fact that when polled on issues, Americans seem more favorable to Democratic positions, but this needs to explained better.

    The more problematic issue is immigration reform which actually requires the reforms/benefits to come first since "interests" are rather complex and long-term. However, the case for immigration is actually not too difficult to explain if the demographic benefits are used, contrasting the economic strength this produces in the USA verses countries with barriers to immigrations (such as Japan) are used as examples of how to create age bombs (immigrants tend to lower median age and increase economic activity, and immigrants start far more small businesses).
