Has the Democratic Party lost its ability to govern?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlePopular

Abstract

Donald J. Trump is campaigning with renewed vigor in the wake of his successful Supreme Court Justice nomination. Moreover, the drama and the salacious details covered in the press or vocalized as testimony in Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, fit his made-for-TV-reality-show presidency. At the same time, his supporters continue to respond to the fear cultivated in his rhetoric and continue to adore Trump’s nonconformist methods. What is the party in opposition to do? Should it adopt the Trumpian playbook and his line of attack in the lead-up to the midterm elections or should it follow former First Lady Michelle Obama’s advice that “fear is not a proper motivator?”
