Election Eve: Looking Ahead And Analyzing The Past
Hanging chads, dimples, butterfly ballots, contested results... On this River to River podcast, a look back at elections gone awry and Iowa political scientists share their thoughts on the eve of the 2020 election.
A half dozen of our regular political scientists tell us what’s top of mind for each of them this election eve. Later on, presidential historian Tim Walch tells host Ben Kieffer about the contested election of 2000 and its aftermath, the challenge of transitions, and the changing relationship between presidents and their vice presidents throughout history.
