Andrew Prokop at Vox.com says progressives are worried that Governor Andrew Cuomo, aka, Gov. 1 percent, will be the future of the Democratic Party, not Mayor deBlasio. They are right to be worried.

The future of the Democrats requires them to become again the party of working class voters, or they will have no future at all.
