Politics Podcast: Bernie Sanders Is Gaining Ground One Week Before Iowa

In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew assesses Sen. Bernie Sanders’s improvement in state and national polls with just one week to go before the Iowa caucuses. They also debate whether reporting on former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s new book will pressure Republican senators to call witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
