With two weeks left before Election Day, tens of millions of voters have already cast a ballot in the 2020 election. This unprecedented enthusiasm from voters has been met unfortunately with new barriers to voting and the franchise. The Appeal’s Daniel Nichanian joins the pod this week to discuss this tension as well as how summer protests for policing and criminal justice reform have shaped down-ballot races. Daniella and Jesse also discuss the never-ending scandals of the Trump White House.
