Veteran pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell, of the “Political Insiders” show airing Sunday nights on Fox News, joined SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about the impact of the Indiana primary on the presidential race.

Caddell put the bottom line right up front, saying the primary results tell us “the race is over on the Republican side,” while “the Democratic race is going to go on.”  

He wasn’t just talking about Bernie Sanders limping along for a few more weeks, either, as he predicted “there’s gonna be more fireworks in the Democratic Party.”

“This is the most stunning takeover of a political party since William Jennings Bryan took over the Democratic party in 1896,” Caddell said of Donald Trump’s victory in the Republican race.

“A driving populist force in the country, over the issue of gold and silver, at a time when the country was very prosperous – it was actually changing to quite an industrial country,” he recalled of Bryan’s ascendancy.  “This has never been seen in modern times.”

Bannon and Caddell quoted from Bryan’s famed speech at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago: “You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.”

With that speech, and his primary victory, Bryan changed his Party forever.  “It was the end of an era.  The Democratic Party changed,” said Caddell.  “Donald Trump has done this takeover — you can call it a ‘hostile takeover,’ I’ve said it sort of tongue-in-cheek, but it is.  And it’s not he that’s taken it over, the voters have.”
