A Trumpian Convention

The elections podcast crew is broadcasting from Cleveland! The rules committee appears to have put an end to the “dump Trump” campaign, delegates have approved a staunchly conservative party platform and the city has stocked up on riot gear in anticipation of protests. It’ll be an interesting week.

Nate Silver, Clare Malone, Harry Enten and Farai Chideya join Jody Avirgan to discuss what to expect from a week of pageantry, protests and over-caffeinated media.
