Move to Amend Director Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap points out a reality Democrats will do well realizing sooner than later. If the Democrats are to win the White House, they must nominate a populist candidate.

Next Democratic nominee must be a populist

Donald Trump mobilized enough people in the right places not only on his message of hate and fear. He used Progressive policies articulated in his bombastic manner. The abundance of work, prosperity, and winning for everyone could equate to basic income. Healthcare for everyone that they would love and could afford parallels Medicare for All.
