Trump, the shifting GOP, & polarized US politics

Trump, the shifting GOP, & polarized US politics
Trump, the Shifting GOP, & Polarized US Politics | Interview with NPR's Tamara Keith | GZERO Media

Remember when midterms were boring? Definitely not this year: the red wave-turned-ripple was only enough for Republicans to narrowly win the House, while the Democrats kept the Senate. But 'why' it happened is a harder question to answer.

On GZERO World, NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith speaks to Ian Bremmer about all things midterms and what 2024 has in store for both parties.

For Keith, Democrats turned out more voters worried about democracy and abortion.

Keith shares her perspective on whether the GOP is still a MAGA party or a Trump personality cult and, looking ahead to 2024, whether Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is a viable alternative to the former president.
