Politics Podcast: Why Democrats Are Done With Iowa And New HampshireFebruary 17, 2021
Nevada Democrats introduced a bill on Monday that would change their state’s presidential nominating contest from a caucus to a primary and also dislodge New Hampshire from its position as the first primary in the nation. Also, over the weekend, outgoing DNC Chair Tom Perez said, “a diverse state or states need to be first.” In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses if any potential changes could reshape the nominating process. They also consider why Republican senators’ votes on convicting former President Donald Trump broke down the way they did. And lastly, they check-in on the gubernatorial recall efforts in California that are very likely to result in a recall election for Governor Gavin Newsom.
