Description
The 2020 election has been dominated by the slippery notion of “electability.” Today’s Democratic Party has put a premium on selecting a candidate who can defeat President Trump and the desire to win is so strong that surveys show Democrats want an “electable” candidate, even if that person doesn’t align with their beliefs. In this lecture, she'll examine identity politics over the past decade and the way that they have helped set up today’s electability question.
