Politics Podcast: How Conservative Can Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Be?

The political jockeying over the nomination of the next Supreme Court justice is underway. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast team discusses how politicians are reacting and what the court will look like if, as seems likely, Chief Justice John Roberts winds up in the ideological middle. The team also checks in on how moderates like Doug Jones are faring in Congress today.
