What are the real chances Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or Donald Trump will win the 2020 US Presidential Election? This episode features expert statistician Nate Silver weighs the advantages and disadvantages each candidate brings to the race and gives his early prediction on who has the best chances of winning.

Statistician, Founder & Editor-in-Chief of the FiveThirtyEight, Nate has established himself as the go-to election guy using numbers and data to analyze both elections and baseball. He broke out as a media darling in 2008 when he predicted that Obama would beat McCain and he called the election one hour earlier than all other outlets. Nate is also a political analyst for ABC News.
