The Future of the GOP with Ross Douthat and Henry Olsen

Crosscut Talks

Months after losing the presidency and the Senate majority, the Republican Party is at a defining moment. Which way will it go? That the Republican Party is undergoing a very public reckoning isn't really in question. But, depending on where you sit on the political spectrum, that reckoning can look very different.  Is a GOP in free fall doomed to shatter once it hits bottom? Is the party still in the early stages of a painful but necessary transformation? Or is it only the Republicans who won't go along with the so-called "Big Lie" who are due for a reckoning? Conservative columnists Henry Olsen (Washington Post) and Ross Douthat (The New York Times) have been tangling with each of these takes on their preferred party since before Republicans lost the presidency and their Senate majority last fall.  For this episode of the Crosscut Talks podcast, both men dissect the political realities of the current moment while mapping out potential futures for the GOP. --- Credits Host: Mark Baumgarten Event producers: Jake Newman, Andrea O'Meara Engineers: Chi Lee, Resti Bagcal, Viktoria Ralph

Dionne on the left. It was selected as one of the best books of the year by The Economist. Teixeira’s recent writings for American Progress include “America’s Electoral Future: The Coming Generational Transformation” and “The Path to 270 in 2020”.
