As part of the Mitchell Center's Race and Politics series, presented in a partnership with BGAPSA, CNN commentator TARA SETMAYER sits down (virtually) with Penn Political Science professor ROGERS SMITH to discuss fallout from the 2020 Election, in particular its impact on the identity of the Republican Party. Does the party need to expand its appeal to historically marginalized groups? Can it fashion new and more inclusive narratives of national belonging? Or has the demographic configuration of American politics become too entrenched to alter?
