State politics are changing as we focus more on national politics
State politics are becoming increasingly nationalized, as voters, and candidates, focus more on national issues, instead of local ones. This hour, we look at the impact of this nationalization, and we discuss how the loss of local news has impacted our awareness of state politics. Finally, we’ll learn about how Americans have become increasingly politically segregated.
