I’ve been reading a lot about the Corbyn/Labour gains (as well as the huge Macron win), to glean what I can that might be helpful to us in NY-19 vis-a-vis our grass roots efforts. One thing that strikes me is that the galvanizing and hopeful results for both Corbyn and Macron come from very different political/policy perspectives. For that reason, I don’t think we can necessarily draw, as some are wont to do, that a “progressive” platform is the key ingredient to an electoral win. As they say, it all depends.
