Will from Political Junkie News joins Matt and Robert as they discuss what is shaping up to be a very historical presidential election. Or is it? Specifically, they look at the possibility of a brokered convention, a third party movement, the length of the election cycle, a potential high voter turnout, and the rise of "outsiders" like Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz. They also look at the implications of the recent passing of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia and compare that to similar circumstances in American history. Finally, they look at something sort of unprecedented- the current fight over intellectual property and privacy between the FBI and Apple.
