Steve Hilton joined Stuart Varney on Fox Nation's "My Take" to react to the rise of socialism in the Democratic Party, which he predicted will be a "loser" for Democrats heading into the 2020 election.

Hilton pointed to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as one of the faces of the progressive movement, and he argued that her policies -- like the Green New Deal and Medicare-for-all -- would be "revolutionary in a bad sense."

He said the Ocasio-Cortez "bubble will burst" eventually, but he added that he hopes it lasts until after the 2020 election.

He noted that serious Democratic presidential candidates like Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren have stated their support for some of Ocasio-Cortez's "absolutely insane" proposals, like the Green New Deal.

"Her agenda has become the agenda of the presidential candidates," Hilton said. "And if that continues through the presidential election, I think it is a loser for the Democrats. And that's what I think we should all hope for, frankly."
