Tuesday is election day in California as Governor Gavin Newsom is only about to be recalled the fourth gubernatorial election in US history. On this episode of the Politics podcast, the FiveThirtyEight crew reviews the recall and other upcoming races, and talks about how a Trump endorsement is shaping the Wyoming primaries. They also discuss whether polls asking people about the $ 3.5 trillion Democratic Social Programs Act are a good or bad use of polls. Later on the show, lead writers Maggie Koerth and Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux talk about Biden’s comprehensive vaccine mandate, how Americans feel about vaccine mandates in general, how effective they are, and whether Biden is legal.
