Biden’s Voting Rights Fiasco (w/ Michael Waldman)

In Biden's recent address to the people of the United States, he appeared to leave open the door for Democrats to question the legitimacy of this year's congressional elections due to new voting laws being passed by Republican controlled state legislatures. The. comments came just as West Virginia State Senator Joe Manchin was on the floor of the Senate reaffirming that he would not go along with changing Senate filibuster rules thereby effectively dooming the President's call for sweeping new Federal laws that would override what GOP lawmakers are doing in the states. Another crushing defeat for Biden. How big of a defeat was this for Dems in general? And what will it mean for this fall's midterms? Michael Waldman, President of the Brennan Center for Justice and author of the newly reissued book The Fight To Vote, joins to discuss said questions and much more.
