Starting this week we hope to discuss important themes and issues that might inform how voters choose and how parties reach out to voters in the upcoming elections. Before each phase of election, we will pick one state going to the polls and break down the political issues and trends in that state. Each episode will feature an expert who has studied the state for decades to offer in depth insight on the state we're discussing.

In this introductory episode, we break down the major issues that have come up in surveys and conversations with voters and why. What are the economic issues on voters' minds and why? Will national security concerns have a bearing? These are some of the questions we hope to address here.

Alongside, the issue of a Universal Basic Income has also entered the conversation in the run up to the elections. We are joined by Astha Kapoor to make sense of the UBI and promises of political parties in this respect.
