Will Democrat and Republican platforms flip in the future?

Bernie Sanders: 'Enormously insulting' if Biden ignores progressives in his administration
Wall Street elites are just as much at home in the Democratic party as they are the Republican party. But progressives are increasingly being rejected by centrist Democrats.
I was listening to this podcast show with Megyn Kelly, who interviewed Matt Taibbi:
Kelly is center-right, but she and Taibbi seemed to share strong anti-elite vibes. Taibbi talked about the "Ivy Leaguers" at MSNBC, and Kelly said that Fox News (that she worked at) had more "working class roots".
Somebody like Nathan J. Robinson (Current Affairs) would argue that the pro-progressive, anti-elite vibe coming from the right is all a ruse. He might say, "Don't fall for it!".

I think its inevitable that eventually political partys flip, the democrats some centurys ago were the ones that supported slavery and racism. The republican and the democratic parties have already flipped, its just a matter of time before it happens again IMHO.

They have changed in the past, so they will likely change in the future.

This was Trump's entire appeal which got him into the White House over Hillary Clinton. Regardless of the fact his actual policies were that of a standard neocon and his domestic policies were nativist, it was his rhetoric to to working classes whose jobs were outsourced. I see the same thing with Tucker Carson, the paleo-conservative viewpoint which is creating a rift in the Republican party similar to the rift between corporate Dems and progressives.
The GOP will gain in the midterms if they fully adopt that rhetoric, and Biden just continues "business as usual."

This forum desperately needs a US politics thread.
