Politics Podcast: How a Struggle Between Elites and Populists Shaped the Right

As the 2022 primaries begin in earnest and potential presidential candidates look to 2024, the fight for the future of the political right is on. The GOP may be out of power today, but American parties rarely spend long in the desert before finding their way back to Congress or the White House. When it does, what form will it take?

According to the author Matthew Continetti, to understand where the right is heading, you have to understand where it has been. In this episode of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, he talks with Galen Druke about the decades of conservative history he lays out in his new book, “The Right: The Hundred Years War for American Conservatism.”
