That November Night


As Donald Trump claims Mail-In-Voting will make the election 'fraudulent and inaccurate' we follow the decades-long battle over claimed voter fraud. Going back to the infamous election night of 2000, when Americans awoke the following day not knowing who their President was.  Erik Green interviews William Barnard to discuss the role of Democrats Abroad in increasing support for the party and turnout this election amongst Americans living abroad.   
Erik Green talks to American voters Amelia Morel and Nikolai Kachuyevski to hear why they have decided to vote for Joe Biden in the Election.  Amelia and Nik tell us the most persuasive trait about Biden is that he's not Trump. Our discussion however, revealed Amelia’s hope as a Sanders supporter that Biden can deliver a progressive left-wing platform.  We talked about the Vice President canditates, the impact of Covid, and if Biden can reverse Trump's legacy.
Journalist Erik Green talks to Democratic Mayor of Monessen Matt Shorraw and Greg Swenson from Republican Overseas about the upcoming Presidential Election. Discussion ranges from analysing the impact Covid-19 will have on the campaign to the significance of the economy and recent racial tensions in shaping the race to the White House.
