The Jonah Keri Podcast #74: David Simas

The political is personal as Jonah Keri talks with White House Political Director David Simas about the journey from bags of meat to the school board to the White House; grassroots politics; outsiders; winning votes one by one; switching parties; “keep your government hands off my Medicare”; using data; President Obama’s strategy for reelection in 2012; the functions of the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach that David directs; voters’ thought processes; journalism and fake journalism; the five pillars of politics; the importance of candidates’ biographies and why the President-Elect connected with voters; the Affordable Care Act; and David’s Life Tip.
