What Will You Vote For In 2016?

Jul 15, 2016

The Republican and Democratic National Conventions are just around the corner. The presumptive nominees? Two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in recent history: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. 

Now, maybe you’ve already picked a candidate to support. But beyond the question of who you'll be voting for this November, we want to know what you'll be voting for. This hour, as part of NPR's "A Nation Engaged" series, we find out what issues matter most to you this election season. We talk with political scientists and community members, and we take your calls, tweets, and emails.
