The year after a presidential election is generally the sleepiest time in the country of choice – no split times, no national elections, and no invisible presidential election. During this relatively sleepy time, there is a particularly interesting – and perhaps illuminating – political competition unfolding: the race for New York City mayor. In the Democratic Mayor Primary, some of the strongest disagreements within the party are settled by some of its most dedicated voters. A city is also asked questions about dealing with the police, unemployment, housing, education and other issues related to the pandemic 3.7 million registered democrats.
In the run up to the June 22nd primaries, the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast will spend some time tracking what the race can say about urban politics and the future of the Democratic Party. In this episode political reporters from New York City Gloria Pazmino and Erin Durkin Discuss the current state of the country in the democratic elementary school and the topics that motivate voters.
