The Democrat Party is in shambles after losing over one-thousand seats around the country under former President Obama. President Trump’s stunning victory last November made the Democrat Party’s situation even more precarious. Yet, according to former Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon, both events are recoverable — what’s not — is the degree to which identity politics has infected the Party.
Stephen K. Bannon believes that the Democratic Party’s obsession with identity politics will ultimately backfire against them. In fact, he believes this has broken the party to such a degree that it will never recover.
Bannon, with the whiteboard in his office and his eagerness to check off Trump campaign promises as accomplished, took the brunt of the blame for the administration moving too quickly. But he says the uproar had its upside: It helped create “the resistance” that Bannon believes thoroughly delegitimizes the Democratic Party with average voters it needs to win elections. He claimed he knew the outrage was coming, and that the Left had fallen into a trap. “The Left bit on it, and created the resistance, and it blew up, and now it’s part of the political movement,” Bannon said. “It’s what’s broken the Democratic Party.”
