In a presidential election year, it can seem as if everywhere we turn all news and information is focused on elements of the election, nonstop. What effect does this onslaught of information have on the public’s decision to vote? Host Sherri Hope Culver discusses this topic with broadcaster, researcher and consultant Steve Butler and Temple University Political Science Professor Robin Kolodny.
