Politics Podcast: The Three-Day Shutdown
FiveThirtyEight
 

The Senate voted to end the government shutdown on Monday, less than three days after it began. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast crew looks at what each side gained or lost from the impasse. The team also debates why President Trump’s approval rating has ticked up in recent weeks and how his popularity is faring among women in particular.
