This Sunday in #nerdland: New Marist polls on 2016 Presidential Candidates, an update on the tragedy in Oregon, and a look at a budget crisis that could affect minority voters.
Tomorrow morning we bring you the latest Marist polls on the 2016 presidential candidates. We’ll speak to our panel about the political strategies in play and how that affects the numbers.
Plus we’ll bring you the latest update from the Oregon shooting investigation and President Obama’s impassioned call for action on gun control. Will Congress and the American people follow his lead?
And we’ll take a closer look at the latest case of suspected voter suppression surfacing in Alabama. The state has a tough voter ID law, but is now closing driver’s license offices in some minority communities. Katherine Culliton-Gonzalez, Director of Voter Protection for Advancement Project, joins us to help us understand the potential effect on voter turnout in Alabama.
