Episode #151: November 8, Chicago 7

Less than two weeks to go now, and while most surveys show Hillary Clinton with a lead, Donald Trump insists that despite the “rigged” system and the questionable polls, he is going to surprise a lot of people on Election Day.  Janet Hook of the Wall Street Journal lays out where the race stands and what we can expect in the next week plus.

Even if the presidential race has lost much of its suspense, the battle for the Senate is as heated — and consequential — as ever.  Jon Ralston of the Ralston Report, an expert on Nevada politics, analyzes the contest in the Silver State where Sen. Harry Reid (D) is retiring after 30 years … and which may be the only state where the GOP has a chance for a pickup.  And Steve Kraske of the Kansas City Star and KCUR talks about the race in Missouri, where Republican incumbent Roy Blunt is finding himself in an unexpectedly tough battle.

And with the death this week of Tom Hayden, we replay a 2015 interview we had with him when he talked about his role in the demonstrations outside the 1968 Democratic convention and the conspiracy trial that followed.
