Description

Members of the Republican party, including Mitch McConnell, have shown massive disconnects with the American citizens they purportedly represent in a huge array of topics-- social issues, civil rights, pandering to political donors, foreign policy, cronyism, and much more. So this should be easy for Democrats, the strongest ostensible alternative party, to capitalize on, right? Not really. Why can't the Democratic party take advantage of the obvious disconnect Republicans have with Americans and be champions of the majority of the country? Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, and Jasmyne Cannick discuss.
