David Plouffe and Steve Schmidt are friends, former rivals and two of the top strategic minds in America. They understand American politics better than almost anyone because, when they were running presidential campaigns, they had to make momentous decisions almost every single day. In Battleground, they'll draw on 50+ years of combined experience inside campaigns and in government to break down how the Democrats and Republicans are fighting for votes. They’ll dissect the opposing parties’ game plans to explain exactly what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and why it is – or isn't – working.

Episode Date
Florida: The Checkmate State
David Plouffe and Steve Schmidt are joined by Rick Wilson and Steve Schale, two of the top political strategists in the Sunshine State, and they discuss the ultimate electoral battleground – Florida. The quartet dissects the Trump and Biden strategies in Florida, puzzles over the Trump campaign's shocking ability to squander money and ponders the horrors that await the nation in a post-Trump world where disaffected, MAGA conspiracy theorists refuse to accept the legitimacy of the election.
