Politics Podcast: Coronavirus Is Becoming Even More Partisan

After spending much of the past three and a half years out of the spotlight, former President Barack Obama has become more vocally critical of President Trump’s administration. In turn, Trump has called for Obama and his administration to be investigated. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew asks who is benefiting from a high-profile conflict between Obama and Trump in an election year. They also look at evidence suggesting that Americans’ views on the response to the coronavirus pandemic are growing increasingly partisan.
