Now that more of the vote counts have been finalized, we’re getting a somewhat clearer picture of what happened geographically in 2020. But we need to stay skeptical about convenient narratives regarding who represents “half” the country as well as overly simplistic conclusions about race and class divisions among voters. Politics is still about addition and Democrats and progressives can do more to make the case that they’re building a multi-racial coalition that works across race and class lines to advance good policy.
