Politics Podcast: Americans Wanted To End The War In Afghanistan. Will That Change?

In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew looks at public opinion on the war in Afghanistan and the Biden administration’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops as the Taliban takes over the region. They also discuss how the U.S. has changed over the past decade according to the newly released 2020 census data and how these trends will set the stage for redistricting debates.
