Thomas Schaller, a political science professor at University of Maryland Baltimore County and op-ed columnist for The Baltimore Sun, unpacks the current GOP in "The Stronghold: How Republicans Captured Congress But Surrendered the White House." We’ll also talk about the GOP’s 2016 presidential field.
