After much back and forth within the Democratic Party, President Biden last week announced a plan to use executive action to forgive up to $20,000 of student loan debt per person. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the team looks at which Americans will be affected and how executive action will affect politics and the economy.
The team then debates whether a recent analysis of voter registration data showing an increase in women registering to vote after the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the constitutional right to abortion is a good or bad use of the data. Finally, the team looks at why Biden’s approval rating has risen by almost 5 percentage points since the end of July.
