The Democratic Party: No Place for Moderates?

From Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Bernie Sanders, the Democratic party’s progressive wing has been met with great success.  While Joe Biden, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, continues to be the flag-bearer for the moderate wing of the party, he does so on an increasingly progressive platform.  Is this realignment the route to success in 2020?

  • Peter Baker : American journalist, serving as chief White House correspondent for the New York Times and political analyst for NBC
  • Clare Malone : Senior political writer at FiveThirtyEight, with whom she covered the 2016 election of Donald Trump
