Political Humor, Political Gambling and Ohio Convention History

Featured Audio

Mocking political leaders is an acient practice, and this election season offers plenty of fodder. The Daily Show Co-Creator Lizz Winstead and Editorial Cartoonist Chip Bok talk political humor as the Republican National Convention nears. And Donald Trump isn't the only grist; Hillary Clinton's email server is a joke writer's dream. Later, are gamblers better than pollsters at prediciting political winners? Finally, a look back at previous political conventions in Ohio.
