Welcome to Horse Race Politics! In this first episode, we talk about how and why we study election campaigns, and how gambling odds and media analysis can combine to help us understand what's going on. We discuss the media environment in today's USA and how it differs from the UK, before delving into the odds - outlining the twists and turns that have happened in the campaign from late March onwards.
