October 4, 2019 – The U.S. House of Representatives has launched a formal impeachment inquiry into whether President Trump asked the leader of the Ukraine for help digging up dirt on Joe Biden, a potential rival in the 2020 election. Impeachment has engrossed the country and taken over our news feeds. Yet Americans are on dramatically different pages, even about the basic facts of what happened. To help make sense of all this, correspondent Gwyneth Doland sits down with UNM Political Science Professor Jessica Feezell, whose research draws on scholarship in public opinion, media, political participation, civic engagement, and public policy.

Guest:
Jessica Feezell, Assistant Professor of Political Science at UNM
