The New York Times, in collaboration with Siena College, recently released a round of battleground state polling that shows a much closer 2020 general election contest in swing states than you might expect if you just looked at national polling. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, we have not one but two Nates — Nate Silver and The New York Times’ Nate Cohn — to discuss who might have an advantage in the Electoral College in 2020.
The crew also discusses the state of the Democratic primary, including former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg filing paperwork to join the Alabama primary.
