Thomsen quoted in New York Times article on partisan divide

Thomsen,-Danielle.jpgDanielle Thomsen, assistant professor of political science, was interviewed for the New York Times article, "Democrats Are Playing Checkers While Trump Is Playing Chess." "Because the Democratic Party has been moving steadily to the left in recent decades, it will be hard for them to simultaneously appeal to the ideologically liberal base that has been created along with this shift and to white middle Americans who view their interests to be in direct conflict with some of those who make up the liberal bloc of the Democratic coalition," says Thomsen. 10/26/17
