What are the real chances Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or Donald Trump will win the 2020 US Presidential Election? This episode features expert statistician Nate Silver weighs the advantages and disadvantages each candidate brings to the race and gives his early prediction on who has the best chances of winning.
