Two weeks after a Minneapolis police officer killed George Floyd, sparking protests nationwide and abroad, President Trump’s standing in the polls — and support among some leaders in his own party — is slipping. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses how Americans view the president’s handling of both the coronavirus pandemic and the mass protests against police violence. They also look at how young liberals — many of whom are showing up to the protests — view both the Democratic Party and its presumptive nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden.
