Politics Podcast: Democrats Are Competing Everywhere

Our 2018 House forecast is out, and it shows that Democrats are competitive in a variety of districts across all regions of the country. In this episode of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses what that says about the current political environment and shares other takeaways from the forecast. The group also sorts through new data on President Trump’s supporters and how their feelings about the president have evolved, or not, since 2016.
