LISTEN: The End of the Republican Party
Renowned pollster and political consultant Stanley Greenberg, the man who helped get Bill Clinton elected in 1992, predicts the end of the Republican Party as we know it. Further, he argues that the US is about to enter a progressive era where the pent-up demand for government action will be reflected in deep civic engagement that will continue well after the 2020 election.
Working with focus groups and demographic and polling data, Greenberg sees a fundamental shift in public consciousness.
He argues that, while the Democrats can still screw it up, 2020 could be a once-in-a-lifetime realignment in which the Republican battle against demographic change, inevitable multiracialism, and social modernity is finally lost for good.
Greenberg’s most recent book is R.I.P. G.O.P: How the New America is Dooming the Republicans.
