Politics Podcast: What The Politics Of Abortion Look Like Now

This installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast covers the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Americans’ constitutional right to an abortion. Which states have abortion bans in place already, how have Americans across the political spectrum responded and how could this decision affect the midterm elections?

The crew also analyzes two more notable opinions released by the Supreme Court in the past few days: a ruling on gun restrictions in New York that has significant implications for gun control in five other states and Washington, D.C., and a ruling on prayer at public schools.

Finally, the team outlines Tuesday’s biggest primary elections in Illinois, New York, Colorado, Oklahoma and Utah.
