Democrats Face Internal Tensions Too

Washington Post: "Though more united than Republicans, Democrats nevertheless face simmering tensions between the establishment and a newly energized populist wing, led by the unabashed liberalism of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the fiery rhetoric of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren."

"The schisms are as much stylistic as substantive. But however defined, they offer a challenge to the party's next leader... The Democratic Party, by various measures of public opinion, has moved to the left in the past decade. But that does not necessarily mean that progressives have become the party's dominant force or that the policies and messages they advocate can carry the day in a national election."
