I think you could make a case for the Democratic Party coming apart. This new, younger, quasi-Socialist faction really doesn’t sit well with the old guard of the party. Will be interesting who gets the ultimate nomination, given this obvious division. I think that selection process will make the division that much wider.
Hard to imagine the Dems beating Trump when their party is so divided. If they nominate a conservative, the radicals will bolt; and if they nominate a radical, the old guard will.
The big political story in the United States is becoming less and less about the various bogus political attacks against Trump, and more and more about the splintering of the Democratic Party into two mutually distinct and potentially incompatible camps — the traditional Democrats (who have held power) and the so-called “progressive” wing of the party whose members tout themselves as “socialists”. The fissure between the two groups is growing larger and larger, to the point where one might conjecture a complete rupture of the party where the progressives break off to form their own new party.
