Episode Notes

In this episode of our pop-up series on the U.S. elections, hosted by Ryan Heath, we explain what is happening in America's suburbs — a crucial voting block for Donald Trump in 2016 — and particularly, suburban women.

POLITICO's Zack Stanton, who's been looking into the changing nature of America's suburbs, argues that the story of suburban women is the story of the 2020 election.

President and CEO of Republican Main Street Partnership Sarah Chamberlain and Meghan Milloy, the co-founder of Republican Women for Progress, share insights from their conversations with suburban women. They agree that the top concern for this group of voters is the coronavirus pandemic, a message which President Trump hasn't seemed to grasp.
