What’s the smartest strategy for Democrats to take back the House in 2018?

It’s no secret that liberal Americans have been at odds since the November 2016 election.

Those in the Bernie Sanders camp wanted an overhaul of the current system, especially pertaining to issues with education and healthcare. More traditional Democrats were looking to work within the current system. Now, with a Republican president, there are questions about how to take back the House of Representatives in 2018.

But which approach is the smartest? With so much of the base calling for reform, is a conventional approach still relevant, or is the Bernie Sanders model a less-safe, but more effective bet?
