Listen to Episode 32 of Podcast for America!


Podcast for America is your inside look at the human feeding frenzy that is a presidential campaign cycle. Your hosts are Annie Lowrey of New York magazine, Alex Wagner of MSNBC, and Mark Leibovich, national correspondent for the New York Times Magazine.

This week, we take a look at polling from Iowa and New Hampshire, for both Republicans and Democrats. Does Ted Cruz have what it takes to wrest the nomination from Donald Trump? And who do moderate Republicans actually wind up voting for?

And could Bernie Sanders actually win a couple of early states and strike fear in Hillary Clinton?

We’ll address all of these questions and more in our final episode of this version of Podcast for America.
