Politics Podcast: What The New Polling On Kavanaugh Means

The first batch of polls is out in the wake of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony last Thursday. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast crew discusses how the public is reacting. The crew also looks at how faith in the court has evolved in recent decades and debate whether a Kavanaugh confirmation would affect that evolution.
