Episode 252 – Elephants and Donkeys: US Politics Deep Dive (Yiftach Dayan)

In a little over a year, the United States will head to midterm elections. While these elections usually get less coverage and less voter turnout than presidential elections, they play a major role in American Politics. Congress is the main event with all 435 seats up for election. Also up for grabs – about one third of the senate seats and two thirds of the gubernatorial seats.
