Ronald Brownstein Discusses Red & Blue America In 2018 & 2020
In this video, CNN Senior Political Analyst, Ronald Brownstein, analyzes the increasing partisan divide between Red and Blue America. He explains why these partisan divisions are likely to increase as we head toward elections in 2018 and 2020. Brownstein and Kristol also consider possible outcomes in the midterms, the direction of the Trump presidency, and reflect on the electoral dilemmas both parties face in an atmosphere of intense partisanship.
Twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Brownstein was cited for “the clarity, consistency, and quality of his political reporting.” He writes weekly columns for both the Atlantic and CNN.com and also appears regularly in National Journal. A prolific and penetrating columnist, Brownstein is, as the Economist said, “one of America’s best political journalists,” and the Washington Post called him “one of the gold-plated names of political journalism who can still shape big-pictures conventional wisdom.” Brownstein's speeches reflect the depth of his knowledge, making him one of the most trustworthy predictors of America’s future.
