Chris Bowers is a blogger for MyDD. His focus is polling and analysis of the political blogosphere. He tends towards data-driven analysis, such as his partisan index, a ranking of how far each state in the United States leans towards a political party.

Bowers is also a member of the Pennsylvania State Democratic Committee, representing the 8th district of the Pennsylvania State Senate, and a resident of Philadelphia. Bowers is known among progressive bloggers as a particularly strong supporter of organized labor, and as a former labor organizer.

Bowers has overseen netroots surveys that he says demonstrate that progressive Internet activists are driven more by partisanship and pragmatism than far-left ideology, and that show bloggers are influential on rank and file Democrats. He has also argued that bloggers may have the ability to reduce Hillary Clinton's popularity among Democrats. (from wikipedia)" target="_blank">

Put bluntly, it makes them look too liberal.

ACTION: Freeze Out Fox News Instead of providing Fox News with a means to reach a new audience-- Democrats--and thereby stave off its slumping ratings, instead of giving them a golden opportunity to further distort the image of Democratic presidential candidates, the Nevada Democratic Party should chose a different media partner to broadcast the Democratic presidential candidate debate.

Surprise! Higher Taxes on the Rich Wildly Popular If we are going to achieve the 40% social investment economy, the public sector will require more revenue. More public sector revenue basically means more taxes. Clearly, the only new taxes that will be politically feasible will those targeted toward higher income groups. The best options are to repeal all Bush-era tax cuts, put a tax on all carbon

How to fight Wall Street - and Win! With the final version of the Wall St reform bill to be hammered out in a congressional committee this month,this unwillingness by members of Congress to defend Wall St in public gives us a chance to make the bill as strong as possible. That's why we demand that the entire conference committee be televised.Members of Congress are much more likely to support strong reform on television than they are behind closed doors.

Drinking Liberally Reaches 200 Within the progressive movement, there is probably no organization that better represents the connection between a progressive lifestyle and progressive politics than Living Liberally. This is an organization that helps progressives and liberals connect with one another in a variety of ways that, while not overtly political, often have positive repercussions for progressive politics.
