How long until the Democrat Party splits into the progressive Party and Socialist Party ?

Wrong. The two factions you mentioned would belong to the same party. Progs embrace Democratic Socialism
Our other "Democrat" party would be known as the Global Trade/Neoliberal party.
Mainstream democrats like Clintons, Biden, Obama, McCauliffe and Booker would belong to this party,
The Democratic Socialist/progressive party would include Sanders, Gabbard, Warren (possibly*) and Ocasio Cortez.
People on the Left have been griping about their lack of representation for a while. Global Trade/Nroliberal party is the center-right party and has been since Clinton was president. Nothing Liberal about them.
It IS time for at least one more party into the mix. Makes elections more reflective of the public.
I'd argue that the Trump party needs to break off from the Conservative party.

The Progressive Party was a split off from the Republican Party, not democrat.

How about never, given that there ALREADY is a Socialist Party USA, and that a Progressive Party that split from the Democratic Party in 1948 was dissolved in the 1960's.

in some ways it's happening now...
in bluer-than-blue California, none of the leading candidates for governor uses the word "democrat" on their websites or campaign materials.... across the ballot, you see terms like "progressive" "responsible" and "bipartisan" far more often than you see "democrat"..
...compare that to just a few years ago when the marketing guys who gave us obama were pushing that "Blue D" logo to attempt to turn the party into a "brand"...
...much of the strident trump hate you hear in the media is being distributed purposely to deflect attention away from the very real problems the democrats know are within their party...

Less than 5 months till the doomsday election for them. I say they are well on their way to becoming a bonified Socialist Party of America.

They already have. Many Democrats that work for aiving, voted for Trump. Only the losers did not

I think there is a chance that will happen shortly after the November elections if the Democrats get hammered as badly as it appears they will.

Most parties on the left are forced to vote for the Democrats whether we like them or not, both far and center left.
It's the stupid two-party system.
