A Tale of Two States in the Race for the White House Tomorrow's contests in South Carolina and Nevada will be an important test of whether establishment candidates still have a shot in this election year. If Nevada voters "feel the Bern," it signals that non-white voters, long considered Clinton supporters, are open to the maverick message. It's also central to tomorrow's Republican primary in South Carolina, where polls show Donald Trump as the frontrunner, despite his lack of evangelical Christian cred and a no-vote from the Pope himself. It's a state that predicted the GOP nominee every election but one in the past 35 years. We go to both states to take the temperature of southern evangelical voters and Latino Democrats.
The National Latino Congreso After 30 years of community organizing, Latinos have not closed the socioeconomic gap with white Americans and they're "not ready" for "leadership at the highest levels."

What happens when America retreats from the world?

León Krauze guest hosts.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
