Democratic strategist Andrew Feldman says Biden is moving left

Democratic political consultant Andrew Feldman said if Democrats gain control of Congress and the White House in November, it could lead to a New Deal era of progressive policies.

Feldman told Hill.TV this week that despite the moderate approach taken by former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenTrump campaign emails supporters encouraging mask-wearing: 'We have nothing to lose' Cuba spells trouble for Bass's VP hopes Democrats want Biden to debate Trump despite risks MORE, his inclusion of progressives like Sen.

“Because of the energy around these issues -- around racial justice, around health care, around environmental justice -- I think you will see movement that we have not seen in decades if we can take back the Senate and we can expand our margin in the House and win the White House,” Feldman said.

Democrats are increasingly confident about their chances of taking back the Senate, where Republicans hold a 53-47 majority.

While Biden has not yet released specifics for his first 100 days in office, if elected, Feldman said the candidate has moved to the left on issues like bankruptcy policy and college affordability. For now, Feldman said, Biden is benefiting by letting President TrumpDonald John TrumpWhite House sued over lack of sign language interpreters at coronavirus briefings Wife blames Trump, lack of masks for husband's coronavirus death in obit: 'May Karma find you all' Trump authorizes reduced funding for National Guard coronavirus response through 2020 MORE do all the campaigning.

“The strategy of the Joe Biden campaign is to let Donald Trump continue to shoot himself in the foot,” Feldman said. “He does that every single day, and that’s been working. We are going to see, in the coming days, recommendations from the unity task force that has people..that are beloved by the progressive wing of this party. And I believe that unity task force platform recommendations, whatever is going to be on it, will have an agenda to move the country forward.”
