RadioEd: Mail-in Ballots: Can USPS deliver?
On Nov. 3, experts predict the presidential election will produce the highest voter turnout in at least a century — but a significant chunk of those voters won't be casting their ballot at a physical polling place. Safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic have shined the spotlight on the United States Postal Service and its financial struggles, raising questions about whether it can handle an increased load of mail-in ballots. Will it be able to deliver results on time, free of fraud? Assistant professor of management at the Daniels College of Business, Michael Nalick, an expert in the intersection of business and politics, shares his greatest concerns and explains how the post office became a political issue in the first place.
RadioEd: Political Polls: Can We Trust Them?
Since Donald Trump's upset victory in the 2016 election, skepticism of political polls has grown steadily. After all, the numbers showed Hillary Clinton in the lead from start to finish. Pollster, political analyst, and Korbel faculty member Floyd Ciruli talks to us about what happened four years ago, the likelihood of the president eking out a similar victory on Nov. 3, and what it all says about the state of the country and democracy worldwide.
RadioEd: Election 2020: The Final Week and Beyond
In just seven days, voters will cast their final ballots in the 2020 presidential election, and we’ll finally — fingers crossed — learn whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump will be the country's next president. Seth Masket, political science professor and director of DU's Center on American Politics, joins RadioEd to chart all the twists and turns, and explore what post-2020 politics might look like.
