“Progressive and leftist voters face a choice every election season: Fight for a change from within the Democratic Party? Fight for a third party to the left of the Democrats? Abstain from elections altogether? This year’s presidential race has provided an uncommon opportunity for left politics to reach a national audience. Which candidates, parties, or strategies will help the left put an end to the decades-long triumph of the right wing?”
