hosted by Ben Philpott & Jay Root

Each week KUT's Ben Philpott and the Tribune's Jay Root provide a rundown
of the week's campaign actions and bring you interviews with people who
make a living working on, covering or commenting on the campaigns.

This week, the Texas Tribune’s Jay Root and KUT’s Ben Philpott tackle some of Donald Trump’s assertions that the polls showing him behind…are wrong. They’ll talk with political researcher and pollster Stefan Hankin to break down the possibility of a bad polling year.

And the state of Texas still appears to be a close race between Trump and Clinton. The Director of the UT-Austin’s Texas Politics Project, Jim Henson, joins us with new polling numbers released this week.
