Faction is the (only viable) future for the Democratic party

“The Democratic Party finds itself in a highly precarious electoral position. Although the party performed historically well in 2022, its central weaknesses — those which threaten its ability to govern both nationally and especially at the state level — were still very much in evidence. Even in ‘good’ election cycles, Democrats struggle to translate their typically impressive aggregate vote totals across the country and within states into seats in government. Core to the party’s struggles are its weaknesses with rural and working-class voters. If left unaddressed, the party will not only become irrelevant throughout most states in the country, but it will also continue to face difficulty – and maybe increasing difficulty – in winning the presidency and congressional majorities.” (03/14/23)
