Steve Bannon VS David Frum (Populism Debate)

Great debate on populism.

Former campaign advisor and White House strategist Steve Bannon took on Canadian political commentator and former speech writer for President George W. Bush, David Frum in last nights edition of Munk Debates. The main topic was populism, but a variety of other topics did come up.

Bannon is a fantastic debater. That was on display last night. At the beginning of the debate they took a poll with the live audience on their opinion of populism. A huge majority of disliked and did not agree with populism. At the end of the debate they took another poll. Then. More than half of the crowd agreed with populism.
