This week, Brie gets to the bottom of “Shorism,” — the messaging philosophy advanced by polling wiz kid David Shor, also known as popularism. Why does the idea that Democrats should do what’s popular rankle so many progressives, who’ve long defended Bernie on the grounds that he’s a populist, not a radical? And why are liberals so eager to embrace Shor when they rejected Bernie? What are the flaws in Shor’s approach, and what are the take always? And when will the left finally embrace the value of a messaging strategy? Brie talks to an all-star brain trust this week: Osita Nwanevu of The New Republic, Eric Levitz of New York Magazine, and Matt Breunig of the People’s Policy project. It’s the definitive word on Shorism.
