Politics Podcast: You Asked If Americans Believe In Aliens. We Answered.

In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, we open up the mailbag to answer listener questions on polling, politics and anything else on people’s minds. Listeners were curious to know if Americans believe in aliens, which party benefits from a Midwest/South realignment and whether polling is different for “ranked choice voting” elections.
