Just weeks after political pundits left Joe Biden’s campaign for dead, he stormed back on Super Tuesday and reclaimed his status as the Democratic primary’s frontrunner. What caused this resurgence? And what does it mean for the Democratic Party? Matt Continetti joined the show to discuss what it means for Bernie, whether socialism is still the future for the Democratic Party, why Elizabeth Warren could never catch on, and much more.

Matthew Continetti is a resident fellow at AEI, where his work is focused on American political thought and history, with a particular focus on the development of the Republican Party and the American conservative movement in the 20th century.

He is also a contributing editor at National Review and a columnist for Commentary Magazine, and appears frequently on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” with Bret Baier and MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” with Chuck Todd.

    Very interesting Podcast. The point about Democrats African Americans and Hispanics I think is very spot on and a point that David French and The Dispatch are missing. If you watch Candice Owens, Brandon Tatum, Jason Riley et al there is a subtle shift occurring. This doe snot necessarily mean that there is going to be a 1932 type shift of African American voters but I think President Trump (even if totally politically motivated…like the Democrats haven’t been for the past 80 years regarding African American voters?? W E Dubois helped create the political class and the Democrats coopted them just like the Irish political class) President Trump has shown light down a path the Republican Party needs to begin walking. 


    On the other hand….the gaff part goes both ways….Republicans should be wary about throwing gaffs around too much. President Trump can’t get out of his own way on many occasions. 

    Very much enjoyed the podcast….
