This week on our presidential race podcast: Jay Root and KUT's Ben Philpott talk with national Hispanic activist and former Jeb Bush supporter Temo Muniz about the Republican primaries. Specifically, what do he and other conservative Hispanics do now that Bush is out of the race, and ideas like the mass-deportation of 12 million immigrants are being pushed by frontrunner Donald Trump?

We also talk about the polls heading into Super Tuesday with Jim Henson, the director of the Texas Politics Project at University of Texas at Austin.
