Dr. Rachel Bitecofer, the only political poll expert to nail the 2018 election, joins us to explain why she thinks Donald Trump is going to lose in 2020, and how Democrats will fare in the House and Senate.

Rachel, a self-described "data girl living in a data bro's world," is really accessible -- she's a geek, no doubt, but she excels at explaining data in a way anyone can understand. In this episode, we talk about why the numbers say Trump will lose, whether it matters who the Democratic nominee is (Rachel explains why Bernie's Sanders poll numbers have been so relatively anemic: Elizabeth Warren), whether any Republican voters will abandon Trump (and whether it even matters), why Trump is in trouble in the Midwest, and what's going to happen with the House and Senate in 2020 and 2022. Rachel also explains that the Brett Kavanaugh battle actually energized Democrats far more than it did Republicans in 2018, so it didn't hurt us at the voting booth. Just a great interview, you'll enjoy this one.
