For three days the country has anxiously awaited the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. As of right now, it’s looking likely that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. Biden cleared a major hurdle today by pulling ahead of President Donald Trump in the all-important state of Pennsylvania, which holds twenty electoral votes.
Biden is also currently ahead of President Trump overall in the Electoral College, where a candidate must secure 270 electoral votes to win. Meanwhile, President Trump is not conceding defeat. The President claims, without evidence, that there has been fraud in the vote counting process.
To discuss the race and what it means for the country moving forward, Ray Hershel spoke with political consultants Anthony Cignoli and Ryan McCollum, as well as Mount Holyoke College Professor Elizabeth Markovits and Western New England University Professor John Baick.
