Can Clinton Attract Republicans And Still Keep Progressives?

In the weeks since the conventions, numerous Republican politicians and officials have voiced their support for Hillary Clinton. Recent polls suggest some Republican voters are following suit.

In this week’s podcast, FiveThirtyEight’s Farai Chideya takes the host chair to talk with the normal crew about what kind of Republicans are likely to support Clinton, whether she’ll shift positions in the effort to woo them, and if that could turn off already reluctant progressives.

The team also looks at the effects of Trump’s suggestion that the election could be rigged and digs into the most comprehensive poll yet on what attracts voters to Trump.
