[Special] How To Vote for the Next President

EHey Gabfest listeners, today we're featuring a special election-themed episode of the Slate podcast How To! with Charles Duhigg. Anthony is that rarest of things in American politics—a swing voter who is up for grabs in 2020. Caught between his Republican voting history and his current dislike of President Trump, Anthony is now registered as an Independent. So should he follow his head or his heart? In this episode of How To!, we bring in veteran political advisors David Axelrod, chief strategist for Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, and Mike Murphy, a Republican consultant, who co-host the podcast Hacks on Tap. David and Mike discuss how to weigh ideology vs. electability and rank the issues that really matter. Can their advice help Anthony—and all of us—make sure our vote counts in November? Subscribe to How To! with Charles Duhigg — the show Adweek honored as 2019’s "Interview Podcast of the Year" — wherever you listen to podcasts. Learn more about your ad choices.
