Capitol Weekly Podcast: Let’s talk about ‘electability’

Political data maven Paul Mitchell joins the Capitol Weekly Podcast’s John Howard and Tim Foster to talk about the latest buzzword in the 2020 election lexicon — electability. Electability is that indefinable something that every candidate wants but few have. It’s hard to nail down, but you know it when you see it.

Mitchell, the founder of the CA120 political column and one of our regular podcast guests, is a political strategist and statistician, and he takes a deep dive — his first of many — into the results of his first tracking poll. His findings may surprise you.
