Politics Podcast: Will Georgia Stay Blue?

If 2016 showed that Republicans could win in the upper Midwest, 2020 has shown that Democrats can win in the Sun Belt. President-elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Arizona since 1996 and the first to win Georgia since 1992. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, we focus on Georgia. Galen Druke speaks with FiveThirtyEight’s Perry Bacon Jr. and Greg Bluestein of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the trends that turned the state blue and whether they might last.
