“In short order he will completely and irrevocably alienate all the growing political constituencies of the 21st century: the Millennial generation, people of color, educated professionals, women. He’ll eventually do the same for a significant number of more moderate Republicans. I think the backlash will be fast and furious.”
In a piece written around the time of Trump’s inauguration, Peter Leyden offers up an interesting theory about what we will witness with Trump’s presidency.
He suggests it’s not the beginning of a new era, but rather marks the end of one and predicts Trump’s likely to take conservative Republicans down with him.
He explains: “The next four to eight years are going to see a serious sea change in politics — to the left, not the right. The analogy is closer to what happened to the Republicans coming out of the 1930s — they were out of power for the next 50 years.”
