Pollster US 2020 Election Series: Episode 3

Millions of Americans have already cast their votes, the President is doing rallies like never before – apparently, he’s running out of campaign-funds – and Biden is ahead in the polls among senior voters.

In this episode, we discuss the importance of voter turnout. Is there a strategic advantage in voter suppression? Why is Biden not concerned about fraud with mail-in ballots? And is Trump really concerned, or does the President have another reason for doubting their legality?

The electoral college is a major factor in the US presidential election, but what is it really? And why do some argue that the system should be abolished?

In the second part of the episode, we take a closer look at Pennsylvania and Ohio. The two states are interesting, not only because Ohio is “The swingiest of swing states”, as Jim Arkedis put it, but also because the results of the Senate elections on November 3rd by no means are certain in these states.

What are the main issues of Ohio and Pennsylvania for the presidential and senatorial campaigns? Who has the upper hand? And why are the results in these states so important?

There are less than two weeks until November 3rd, the Americans have started voting – what’s next?
