    Bernie Sanders on Gaza, genocide and Trump

    Bernie Sanders on Gaza, genocide and Trump

    Bernie Sanders is the longest-serving independent senator in US congressional history and has brought income inequality, poverty and the “uber-capitalist” status quo into focus throughout his decades-long career. He nearly became the Democrats’ candidate for president, twice, and has recently been backing Joe Biden against Donald Trump, warning that Trump’s re-election could be the end of American democracy.

    In his latest book, “It’s Okay To Be Angry About Capitalism”, he presents his vision of what would be possible through a progressive agenda - one that would challenge the “corrupt” economic order that allows just 1% of super-rich to control more wealth than the rest of society, and where a decent standard of living for all is not an impossible dream.

    In this episode of Ways to Change the World, the US Senator tells Krishnan Guru-Murthy why the US should stop its funding for Netanyahu’s “horrific war against the Palestinian people”, why a second Trump victory could foment right-wing movements across the world with disastrous consequences, and why taking on the ruling class is a necessary but “long, long process”.

    All about the base: Trump rules Republican primaries, but what about November?

    All about the base: Trump rules Republican primaries, but what about November?

    So much for the primaries. Donald Trump is all but killing suspense this January with an 11-point win in New Hampshire over Nikki Haley, his sole Republican rival left standing. Never Trumpers can try the "it’s only 11 points" argument in a state he won by 20 points during his first run in 2016, but New Hampshire is an outlier that lets independents vote in primaries. Exit polls suggest the former president won the votes of three quarters of the party faithful. 

    We ask about the Republican faithful: they do not all approve of the January 6, 2021 bid to storm the Capitol and overturn elections, but are ready to overlook that. Why? And why are they so energised? Do the Donald Trumps of this world answer a demand or dictate the agenda? 

    More importantly, is that energy enough to unseat Joe Biden? As we saw in 2016, Trump does not need a majority of the votes, but simply to win in the right states. So what is the populist strategy for 2024? 

    Produced by Charles Wente, Rebecca Gnignati and Imen Mellaz.

    A Guide to the New Hampshire 2024 Primary ft. Dante Scala

    A Guide to the New Hampshire 2024 Primary ft. Dante Scala

    Polls suggest that the New Hampshire Primary should be more competitive than Donald Trump's large margin in Iowa's low-turnout caucus. Just 4 of New Hampshire’s 10 counties will likely comprise 75% of the primary electorate. Dante Scala, University of New Hampshire, joins Kyle Kondik and Carah Ong Whaley to offer a guide to which New England hamlets offer the best clues to the outcome on Tuesday, January 23, 2024. Kyle also discusses among which key demographic groups Donald Trump did better in Iowa’s low-turnout 2024 caucus compared to 2016.

    Kyle Kondik shares his new analysis on Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball that compares Trump’s approval in 2019 to Biden’s approval in 2023, the same point in each presidency. He finds that Biden’s lower approval is not driven by a higher level of antipathy from Republicans. Kyle and Carah Ong Whaley also reflect on the state of democracy and the upcoming 2024 elections.

    Spoiler Alert? Third Party Wild Card & Perceptions of Women in Politics

    In this episode, we dive into a new analysis by Kyle Kondik, Managing Editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball, about where third parties run strong and where we should expect the third party vote to be meaningfully higher or lower in the most important states in the Electoral College in 2024.

    Joel K. Goldstein, a vice presidency scholar at St. Louis University, joins Kyle Kondik and Carah Ong Whaley to discuss lessons from history on vice presidential selection.

    Navigating Shifting Political Landscapes ft. Grace Panetta

    In this episode, Grace Panetta, a political reporter at The 19th, joins Kyle Kondik, Carah Ong Whaley and Kylie Holzman to discuss several key issues for the 2024 election, including media coverage of women candidates, voter turnout, dramatic shifts in election law landscape, and ongoing threats to democracy posed by election denialism.

In 1996, Bill Clinton won both the most (by 15.7 percentage points) and least populous counties (1.8 point margin). That means the difference between the two was 13.9 points. By 2020, the gap between the most vs. least populous counties was 39.2 points.
