Politics Day: From the Gaza Strip to the U.S. Border

Jul 16, 2014

Ten years ago, it was wildly controversial to talk about psychological differences between liberals and conservatives. Today’s that’s changed.

It’s politics day on River to River. Today we ask what brain science might have to say about your politics. Before that, our political analysts give us their thoughts on a variety of political topics in the news, including the continued violence in Gaza and Israel. Domestically, we discuss whether the U.S. border crisis is changing the immigration debate, and a new poll showing Joni Ernst is now tied with Bruce Braley.

Our guests this hour include Tim Hagle, of the University of Iowa, and Jim McCormick, of Iowa State University.
