The Coming G.O.P. Apocalypse - The New York Times

The Coming G.O.P. Apocalypse  The New York Times

For much of the 20th century, young and old people voted pretty similarly. The defining gaps in our recent politics have been the gender gap (women preferring Democrats) and the education gap. But now the generation gap is back, with a vengeance. This is most immediately evident in the way Democrats are sorting themselves in their early primary preferences. A Democratic voter’s race, sex or education level doesn’t predict which candidate he or she is leaning toward, but age does. In one early New Hampshire poll, Joe Biden won 39 percent of the vote of those over 55, but just 22 percent of t...

Booing pragmatism is a huge sign that Democrats don’t really want to win - New York Post

Booing pragmatism is a huge sign that Democrats don’t really want to win  New York Post

With Mayor Bill de Blasio spending his time tilting at windmills in 2020 presidential primary states, it’s only natural that the local political class would have already started thinking about the race to succeed him in 2021. But one obvious candidate — former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn — is starting out with a terrible handicap. As The Post reported over the weekend, some Democrats think she’s a conservative. In what bizzaro universe would a hard-core liberal like Quinn be considered a right-winger? Only in New York, you say? No one should underestimate the willingness of Big App...

If establishment Democrats need any more evidence New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is connecting with voters outside the Bronx, last week’s raucous California Democratic Party Convention provided an object lesson. Fourteen Democratic presidential hopefuls descended on the Golden State to make their pitch for a share of its 495 primary delegates, yet no figure loomed larger than one who wasn’t even there: Ocasio-Cortez. It made little difference. In her absence, 2020 contenders grappled with the ambitious policy agenda so closely connected to Ocasio-Cortez’s meteoric political ascent: ...

Former vice president Joe Biden greets audience members last month during a rally in Iowa City. (Charlie Neibergall/AP)The Associated Press When Joe Biden first entered the presidential race, he was supposed to be a Jeb Bush redux — a relic of a bygone era who would quickly be swept away by candidates who appealed to the party’s insurgent wing. But so far that hasn’t happened — instead Biden enjoyed a solid post-announcement bounce in the polls and now leads his closest competitor, Bernie Sanders, by double digits. That prompted some to make the opposite case, and Biden became Hillary Clint...

But mounting p...
