With less than a week before Election Day, tens of millions of Americans have already cast a ballot in the 2020 general election, shattering voter turnout expectations. This week, Daniella and Jesse connected with political scientist and editor of The Cycle Dr. Rachel Bitecofer to dig into these numbers and discuss what to make of the shifts in electoral coalitions that have taken place over the last few decades. Plus, our hosts talk about Congress’ misplaced priorities ahead of the election.
