After four days on constant Adrenalin, plenty of coffee and tobacco, it was time for a major comedown on Saturday night helped along by two bottles of red wine. However, now I am ready for my first more detailed postmortem on the election. In this podcast episode I ponder some questions weighing heavily on my mind. Even though Biden won the popular vote and reconstructed the blue wall, why is Trumpism still well and alive, and how will this realisation shape politics in the Republican ecosystem? What were the reasons behind the Republican’s success nationwide? Will Biden manage to govern as a centrist, given the balancing act between a supportive progressive base and political realities in Congress? What will the transition tell us about a Biden administration, and to what extent will Trump’s refusal to concede disrupt an orderly takeover come January 20th?
