Politics Podcast: Will The Stimulus Bill Boost Democrats’ Electoral Prospects?

President Biden has urged states to extend coronavirus vaccine eligibility to all adults by May 1, and some states appear to be on an even faster schedule. The US is fast approaching a time when the challenge for the government is no longer to secure enough vaccines but to ensure that everyone who is entitled is actually vaccinated. In this portion of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew examines how Americans’ attitudes towards the vaccine have evolved and why Republicans remain more reluctant.

They also ask whether the presidential approval vote is still useful in a polarized environment. And they are examining how lawmakers and voters are responding to recent sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
