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 polls have gotten so close that it looks like the assumed Clinton victory is more of a toss-up. So the Texas Tribune’s Jay Root and KUT’s Ben Philpott will talk about where the race stands now and evolution and effect of polls in the 2016 election with Republican pollster Chris Perkins.

And because we’re based here in Texas, we’ll talk about how the national race could-might-maybe-possibly affect politics in the lone star state with Texas Tribune CEO and noted New York Yankees fan Evan Smith.
