Politics Podcast: Do Voters’ Second Choices Matter In The Democratic Primary?

As candidates in the Democratic primary drop out or fail to earn delegates, voters’ second choices will become more important and potentially shape the dynamics of the race. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses how voters are settling on their second choices and what impact those could have. The team also previews what might happen in this week’s likely impeachment vote in the House.
