Why ‘wokeness’ is the biggest threat to Democrats in 2022

CNN, 22 Jul 2021

In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how Democrats need to navigate this self-made minefield and push back on Republicans’ anti-woke messaging if they want to score big wins in the upcoming election.
