Description

Even as Democrats see their support swell, they are still in real danger of losing control of the House to Republicans. The sitting president's party often loses more than two dozen House seats during midterm elections — and Democrats have just a single-digit majority.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, political reporter Deepa Shivaram, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.
