Days after the 2020 presidential race was finally called for Joe Biden, there is still cause for progressive Americans who voted against Donald Trump and Trumpism to be concerned.
Support for Trump has increased in real terms – from nearly 63 million votes in 2016 to well over 73 million this year.
Moreover, post-election tensions are emerging between progressive and centrist factions of the Democratic Party who had not long ago joined forces to run a disciplined and unifying electoral campaign.
Prominent left-wing intellectuals, meanwhile, are warning the Biden-Harris victory could end up being just a progressive “mirage”.
What most analysts failed to notice, however, is that the left of the Democratic Party has grown savvier and more pragmatic as well.
