The Pollcast: The second presidential debate, the media, and the polls


The next confrontation between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will take place on Sunday at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

The first debate did not go very well for Trump. Since that debate, Clinton's lead over the Republican nominee has grown in national polls and her electoral college advantage has solidified. At the second presidential debate, can Trump do anything to turn his campaign around?

Joining me to discuss the upcoming debate and the role of the media and polls on the U.S. presidential campaign is Matthew Yglesias, co-founder of Vox.

  1. Stick to Canadian politics. After all, this is threehundredeight.com, an obvious reference to the (former) number of seats in the Canadian House of Commons. Do you think these American clowns give a damn about our politics? No. So, let's not give them the coverage here.
