Republican Strategist Kevin Madden sits down with Ben Domenech to discuss the frustrations, debates, and impact of the 2016 election compared to past presidential campaigns.
This election cycle seems to be driven more by grievances than higher ideals, Madden said. “This is a race to see who hits the bottom last and we may lose a generation of people who may have gone into politics.”
They discussed the ways in which the orientation of the Republican Party may shake out among its electorate over the next two years. “Recognizing that you can’t win this column of economic populist who are driven more by their support of the individual than than the issues, and the alt-right which is much more focused on taking down the establishment,” Madden said. “And then appeal to those conscientious objectors who want a center-right country.”
