Will Donald Trump help or hurt other Republicans up for election this fall? FiveThirtyEight contributor David Wasserman joins the elections podcast to look at whether GOP majorities in the Senate and House are in danger. Then the team tackles the notion that Trump supporters have been reluctant to share their preferences with pollsters, skewing the polls against him. Plus, as scrutiny of North Carolina’s transgender bathroom bill grows, the crew discusses the role that social issues play in how people vote.
