In the U.S. midterms on Tuesday, the Republicans are expected to take control of the House and the Democrats have little better than even odds of holding the Senate. But with rising polarization and election denialism, there’s more at stake in Tuesday’s vote than whether the red or blue team will come out ahead.

Joining me on this week’s episode of The Writ Podcast is Nathaniel Rakich, senior elections analyst at FiveThirtyEight. Nathaniel breaks down the races to watch on Tuesday and together we discuss what sets America’s elections apart from those here in Canada.
