Last November, President Donald Trump gave back five states he carried in 2016, as a normally urban-centric Democratic Party made inroads into America’s suburbs. David Brady and Douglas Rivers, Hoover Institution senior fellows and Stanford University political scientists, discuss America’s post-Trump political landscape and whether a genuine realignment occurred in 2020, or if the 45th President’s impact won’t be all that lasting.

    Besides Texas, Biden took most all of the southwest. Some of those areas are really conservative and Donald Trump’s extreme immigration policies likely had a lot to do with the shift. It’s going to be a while before the bad taste of Trump is out of people’s mouths and Republicans would have to really present a very different alternative to win back that region.
