Meanwhile, Weigel diagnoses what went wrong with the Biden campaign and explains how the Bloomberg 2020 campaign is changing the way billionaires can dictate a primary on the Democratic side. Sam and Weigel conclude their conversation with a discussion about how to motivate voters who low-information, low-stake voters to go to the polls in November.
