Major metropolitan areas like New York City are shrinking in population with many who left during the height of the pandemic not returning and fewer people moving in. Instead of flocking to coastal cities, people are instead choosing to live in suburbs and smaller cities in the South and Southwest.

Derek Thompson from The Atlantic joins us to discuss what these regional shifts mean for cities and electoral politics moving forward.

This segment aired on August 24, 2020.
