Democratic Strategist Analyzes Election Results for CalChamber Board

Mo Elleithee, former communications director for the Democratic National Committee, explains to the CalChamber Board of Directors via Zoom on December 3 how many voters submitted split tickets—voting for President-Elect Joe Biden at the top, and a Republican down ballot. Elleithee says the nation is going through a political realignment. Instead of a left versus right division, he says, the divide is between people who feel they are stuck at the back of the line versus those who they feel are keeping them there. Elleithee is the founding executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service.
