Ben Wikler, Washington Director at, discusses the backlash Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is facing in the wake of his decision to vote for government funding without a fix on DACA.

Wikler says he believes Democrats have the upper hand if February 8th comes and another shutdown happens. We also talk about the future of the party and what it means for the midterm elections in 2018 and the general election in 2020. Wikler speculates about whether Democratic voters will be divided, similar to how Congressional Democrats were divided over the spending deal.
