Author and Psychologist Drew Westen

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday on RadioWest, as Americans in some 20 states head to the primaries, we're talking about the political brain. Psychologist Drew Westen joins Doug to explain the role emotion plays in the votes we cast. According to Westen, it sheds light on the success and failure of many candidates. When reason and emotion collide, there's no contest.

KUER will bring you NPR's live, anchored primary coverage beginning at 6:00 p.m., preempting RadioWest at 7:00 p.m.
