Politics Podcast: What Americans Want The U.S. To Do Next On Ukraine

Politics Podcast: Adam Schiff Is Worried About American Democracy

A week and half after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we know more about Americans’ views on how the United States should respond. Americans overwhelmingly approve of the sweeping economic sanctions the US has enacted so far and significant numbers support going further. In this installation of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew analyzes new polling suggesting Americans support enforcing a no-fly zone over Ukraine and banning the purchase of Russian oil even if it increases gas prices. They also discuss the accuracy of opinion polling conducted in Russia and Ukraine. Lastly, senior writer Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux gives an update on the possible legal case against former President Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection.
