The New York Times

The Field

The results of the 2016 election came as a shock to many Americans on both sides of the political spectrum. The events that followed have only deepened the sense of two Americas that don’t understand each other. The result, as 2020 gets underway and Democrats choose their nominee, is an electorate anxious that it no longer knows what makes for a winning candidate — an electorate asking itself which candidate *other* people might be willing to vote for, not necessarily which candidate they themselves most want to see in office. Each week, Times political reporters will travel around the country speaking with voters to understand their hopes and fears in the lead-up to an election in which the stakes have never felt higher to either side.
