Episode 39: A recent poll found that, unsurprisingly, Americans say inflation is their No. 1 concern. Next on the list are worries about political extremism, crime and immigration. In this episode, Scott Rada and Rick Kyte discuss why voters seem to focus more on social issues rather than on policies that could fix the problems they care about the most.
