Live From New York … It’s A 2020 Draaaaaft!

In a live taping of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast in New York City, the crew competes in a draft of the 2020 Democratic primary candidates. Nate, Clare, Micah and Galen make their arguments for who they think will win the Democratic nomination. They also play “Good Use of Polling or Bad Use of Polling” and give the media (and FiveThirtyEight) a report card for its coverage of the candidates a quarter of the way through the year.
