Listen to Episode 5 of Podcast for America, “Voters Gonna Hate.” As always, you’re welcome, America.

Podcast for America is your serious inside look at the shenanigans of the presidential campaign cycle. Your hosts this week are Annie Lowrey of New York magazine; Alex Wagner, host of Now With Alex Wagner on MSNBC; and special guest host Mike Pesca of Slate’s The Gist, filling in for Mark Leibovich.

On this episode they look at research that claims party loyalty is more about who you hate than you who like. They step back and ask why we keep asking Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton why they are running for president. And they dive into how much Donald Trump’s presidential run will muck up the Republican pool.
