In the first episode of Pollster US 2020, we take a look at the current state of the US Election campaigns – and there’s a lot to cover. We’ve had the first presidential debate, Trump got coronavirus, and a new Supreme Court Justice has been nominated.
How will all this affect the two presidential candidates’ chances of winning? How will The Blue Wall come in to play? Why is it so important? And by the way – what is it? It had a tremendous effect on the 2016 election – how will the candidates handle it this time around?
