This week on the show: KUT's Ben Philpott and the Texas Tribune's Jay Root spent last week going over a few examples of Donald Trump's rocky road transitioning from GOP Primary Candidate to Republican Nominee.

But Hillary Clinton has had her own stumbles. So this week they'll review how she's doing as she tries to reach out to more than just the Democratic base.

And to help talk about how Republicans could take advantage of those slips, GOP consultant Matt Mackowiak joins the conversation.

This week on the show: With the party conventions finally over, the Texas Tribune's Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott will dive into what the race looks likes as the campaigns really kick off. And what Donald Trump's very, very, VERY bad week could mean moving forward.

And as you've probably already seen, one of the biggest stories this week is the post-convention polls! We'll have UT Austin pollster Jim Henson guide us through all the big bounces in the last month.

This week on The Ticket 2016:  KUT's Ben Philpott and the Texas Tribune's Jay Root check back in with Google Data Editor Simon Rogers on what kind of internet searches are being inspired from the speeches at the DNC in Philadelphia.

Then they'll check in with Tribune Reporter Patrick Svitek from inside the convention hall to see if the Bernie Bros really won't vote for Hillary Clinton.
