Victories in both Georgia Senate runoffs capped a successful 2020 election season for the Democratic Party – defeating an incumbent President, regaining control of the Senate, and making inroads in the traditional Republican heartland of Georgia and Arizona.

Yet, as the musical Hamilton reminds us, ‘winning is easy, governing is harder’ and divining a policy agenda to secure the votes of Joe Manchin and proponents of the Green New Deal will prove a challenge.

To discuss the future of the Democratic Party, we are delighted to welcome political scientists Julia Azari, author of Delivering the People’s Message: The Changing Politics of the Presidential Mandate, and Seth Masket, author of Learning from Loss: The Democratic Party, 2016-20.
