Politics Podcast: WHAT THINGS TO Expect Between Now And Election Day

Labor Day traditionally marks the point where general election campaigning truly ramps up summer vacation has ended, TV ads flood the airways and pollsters switch their models from registered voters to likely voters. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses how they expect another few months before the midterm elections to play out, predicated on historical trends. Then they play a casino game of midterm trivia, reviewing the biggest midterm election swings, key policy issues and how Americans have followed past midterm news.

The team also analyzes the media attention surrounding the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions recently published life span report for 2021 and the political implications of falling life span beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
