On this edition of Political Rewind, we talk with longtime CNN political analyst Bill Schneider.
In his new book, Standoff: How America Became Ungovernable, Schneider describes the growing chasm between two populist impulses driving our politics today – one progressive, one conservative. He says it’s the war between the two that led to the election of Barack Obama and then in a stunning reversal, put Donald Trump in the White House. Schneider says these polar opposite forces have made government unmanageable.
