Elections Podcast: What Is Kasich Doing?

Our elections podcast crew discusses whether John Kasich is helping or hurting Donald Trump’s chances of winning the Republican nomination, as well as how the political tussle over Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court will affect the election. Plus, FiveThirtyEight politics intern Anne Li describes the GOP’s shift in focus from “gay marriage” to “religious liberty.”
