Gallup polling reveals widespread public uncertainty about the "progressive" political label -- a label recently embraced by no less than Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.
While Kagan described her political views as "generally progressive" during her Senate confirmation hearings, fewer than half of Americans can say whether "progressive" does (12%) or does not (31%) describe their own views. The majority (54%) are unsure.

People who claim themselves Progressives are telling you that they are particularly foul, nasty, abusive, sociopathic COMMIES.
I guess 54% of people are just plain stupid...
And that is what “progressives” hope for...
The commies can keep on renaming themselves with impunity.
Progressive = anti-Constitution
I tell you, with this economic reality, with former producers sidelined watching city, state and fed workers prosper, perspectives are starting to change.
Stupid Marxist animals think they can just continue to vote themselves ever increasing amounts of our money and freedom and were just supposed to shut up and like it or else
They havent seen anything yet
Its not enough to vote out the marxists in swing districts and regain the majority, that will be the easy part.
It needs to be coupled with the destruction of the communist "Congressional Progressive Caucus" as an above ground legitimate organization.
Its members and supporters need to be exposed as reds, prosecuted and imprisoned where evidence of criminality is uncovered, and the organization itself driven back underground like in the 50's when the marxists met in secret to plot the communist revolution, not changed their names to "Progressives" and did it in our faces.
progressive - Someone who comprehends neither history nor economics.
What a misnomer
The average American probably thinks ‘Progressive’ is a company that employs a quirky painted chick named ‘Flo’ to sell them insurance in a sterile online store.
The general public is too enamored with Lebron James and Tiger Woods at the moment to even care to delve past the political superficiality that makes them do stupid things like, say, elect Barack Obama for president.
I don’t have much faith in them. I just pray that more informed types come out in November and that the left’s useful idiots find themselves way too busy to care to show up.
A Freeper here once said the libtards should be called the “oppressives”.
progressive = regressive
Progressive = Progress on the road to Socialism and Communism.
For Progressives, the ends justify the means, hence their lies and subversions are their tools, much like their brothers-in-arms, radical Islamists, use the principle of Al Takeyya to cover their true intentions.
Progressive is well to the left of liberal. The word was dropped for a while, because it had a bad odor, but now it seems to be coming back.
As many replies have already noted. Communists have long referred to themselves as progressives, beginning back in the nineteenth century.
Progressives are nothing more than PATIENT COMMUNISTS. They’re willing to have Communism creep into society rather than risk an October revolution.
