Politics Podcast: Things Are Looking Worse For The Democrats

The Democrats’ advantage in generic ballot polls has declined in recent months, as President Trump’s approval rating has risen.

The crew also tracks the recent developments in possible talks between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
