In polls, voters often say the economy is one of the top issues they’ll consider when voting in the 2024 presidential election.


But what exactly does that mean? For a lot of people, the cost of housing — rent or a mortgage payment — is the main way they feel fluctuations in the economy. That cost can also be the most stressful.


Today, host Elahe Izadi speaks with politics reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell about why housing has gotten so expensive in Nevada and other swing states— and how that could sway the presidential election.


Today’s show was produced by Emma Talkoff. It was edited by Ariel Plotnick and mixed by Sam Bair.


Two projects from the Post Reports team were just honored with Peabody awards. You can listen to “The Empty Grave of Comrade Bishop” here; and Part One of “Surviving to Graduation” here.
