Are minorities leaving the G.O.P. or are are white voters in general just going the way of the Dodo bird? That’s the question we ponder (Rob Long ponders it at a chi chi bar in Manhattan as you’ll hear). The we chat about the debate with Ramesh Ponnuru and about Tim Kaine’s weird position on abortion rights. Later, Jim Geraghty, the Morning Jolt newsletter author (and host of the Three Martini Lunch podcast), joins to discuss the N.F.L.’s sinking ratings and whether they have to do with the injection of politics into the game. Also, the state of the Presidential race, the fight for Congress, and courtesy of Ricochet member @rushbabe49, our podcasters reveal their happiest memory. Spoiler alert: one isn’t very happy.
