Episode Notes

Trump's indictment made history this week but will it make any difference to his support -- or lack thereof -- among various groups of Americans? We're looking back through over seven years of Marist Polls to see what history tells us.

And, ever thought about life beyond Earth? This week's fun fact gets a little extra-terrestrial.
