Connections: Democrats on how their party can stem possible political losses

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

David Shor has been right on just about everything when it comes to politics over the past ten years. At the age of 30, he's a data scientist whose word has become respected -- or, perhaps, feared among Democrats. That's because, as a Democrat himself, Shor says his own party has been hijacked by white college-educated liberals whose views are far to the left of most Americans. The American political map already favors Republicans, given the advantages the GOP has with the US Senate. As a result, Shor says Democrats are facing devastating political losses over the next decade. He has ideas on how to stem the losses.

Our guests respond to his warnings. They come from a variety of backgrounds on the political left:

  • Jerri Lynn Sparks, former Congressional press secretary and founder of the Riga Democratic Committee
  • Leslie Danks Burke, president of Trailblazers PAC and former candidate for NY State Senate
  • Paul Hypolite, founder of Leading with Our Values, a public affairs firm committed to economic, racial, gender, and environmental justice
