This week on Race to the White House, Brendon O’Connor and Anthony Dockrill are joined by Cedric Johnson, Sekile Nzinga-Johnson and Thomas Adams as they discuss how gender, race and class are shaping the voting patterns in this election.

Will female voters desert Donald Trump, leaving him with a comprised largely of “white trash” men, as they have repeatedly been repeatedly labelled by some elements of the US press?

And have the Democrats lost white working class voters?
