David Brooks on the Virginia Canary

David Brooks is out this morning with a fantastic analysis of the Virginia Canary. The money quote (my emphasis in bold):

“And it’s worth looking around the world and noting that center-left parties are in decline across Europe and beyond. These parties have lost touch with working class voters and are finding they can’t simply replace them with a mixture of identity politics and faculty lounge populism. What we’re seeing around the world is not the rise of left-wing dominance but the decline of major parties and the fragmentation of political parties across the board.”
