Poll Hub

It’s Up to You, NYC Dems?

Episode Summary

The Poll Hub team discusses the results of New York City’s ranked-choice Democratic primary for mayor and the implications on the national stage. Then, the Biden Administration’s goal of meeting a 70% vaccination rate by July 4th fell short. What does it mean in the fight against COVID-19 and for President Joe Biden’s political future? The team discusses.

Episode Notes

This week, Eric Adams was projected to be the winner of the Democratic primary for New York City Mayor (and most likely the Big Apple’s next mayor). Adams’ victory  may be a road map for Democrats on the national stage on how to balance the debate over police reform. We discuss Adams’ victory and his uncertain path to the nomination.

Then, what’s next in the fight against COVID-19? President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70% of Americans vaccinated against the virus fell short. With a large proportion of Americans hesitant to get the shot, will the nation ever reach that milestone? We pick up that discussion.

And, it’s a controversial blast from the past! Hear Lee’s “fun fact” on this week’s Poll Hub. (Guess we were in a New York City kind of mood.)
