Politics Podcast: The Most Consequential Governor’s Races

Thirty-six governors’ seats are up for election in November. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew looks at the states where full control of the government may be decided by these races. They also assess whether narratives from the 2021 Virginia gubernatorial election hold up in light of new data and debate the hottest legislative topic in Washington: making daylight saving time permanent.
