Democrats ran in 2020 with an exoteric message that Trump was a uniquely dangerous president who had to be removed at all cost but also an esoteric message that 2020 was a one-off shot at a landslide win that would let them enact gerrymandering reform and add new states. — PolitiTweet.org

Incumbent presidents losing is rare, but a party being ejected from the White House after just four years is even rarer. Since the Civil War it’s Grover Cleveland (twice), Jimmy Carter, and Donald Trump. — PolitiTweet.org

I think the public health people will remain cautious because it seems like fully distributing a vaccine will take a while. But from an economic POV given how incautious much of America has been, a limited program that’s effective at protecting the most vulnerable is a huge deal. — PolitiTweet.org

I call “not it” but someone (@ddayen???) should do the take that the lesson of the election is Democrats should’ve driven a much harder bargain with CARES even if it ultimately meant wrecking the economy because a wrecked economy would’ve led to a true repudiation of Trumpism. — PolitiTweet.org

Today, the media landscape is a highly competitive war for attention with everyone at least slightly aware of a large set of publications. Most people still have a few outlets they like, and a bunch they don’t read but they now *actively dislike* the ones they don’t read. — PolitiTweet.org

“The media” (i.e., newspapers) in the USA used to be a bunch of geographically segmented quasi-monopolies that deliberately tried to be bland and inoffensive. Most people simply had no idea what most papers wrote, but either liked their local one or else found it boring. — PolitiTweet.org
