Understanding the US election: EARC experts explain the issues

30 September 2020

In our latest podcasts, three EARC experts discuss the US presidential elections, and help us to understand the issues, the history and the strategies underyling them.

While elections are, by their very nature, divisive and confrontational, the forthcoming US presidential election, due to take place on 3 November, is shaping up to be one of the toughest, angriest, and most hard-fought of recent years.

Emma Long (UEA), Royce Carroll (Essex) and Rubrick Biegon (Kent) provide incisive insights into the following areas:

  • Episode 9: looks at the underlying issues which will inform the election, including coronavirus and civil unrest, as well as some more surprising concerns that voters have.
  • Episode 10: looks at the history that has shaped the current system, including the electoral college and issues of faith.
  • Episode 11: looks at the differing strategies that may be used by both parties.
    To discuss these we have gathered three EARC experts to help us to understand the broader context.
