Why a divided Senate may be good for Biden

Why a divided Senate may be good for Biden

Conventional wisdom suggests the best-case scenario for Joe Biden is for Democrats to sweep the two Senate runoffs in Georgia in January – putting Democrats in control of both sides of Congress as well as the White House.

However, Chris Cillizza argues in his latest episode of The Point that a divided Congress may actually be a good thing for Biden.
