The 2020 US Presidential Elections and the State of the Nation

Research event Recording
21 July 2020 — 6:00PM TO 7:15PM

The US continues to face domestic uncertainty with rising cases of COVID-19 fuelling a public health and economic crisis and protests over racial inequality heading into a crucial election year. How has the recent pandemic influenced voters ahead of the November election? How has 2020 differed from previous election years and what will this mean for voter turnout? And are current opinion polls an effective method in which to judge the outcome of the US presidential election?

Amy Walter, national editor with the Cook Political Report, and Adam Boulton, presenter of All Out Politics at Sky News, discuss the current state of the nation and what this means for the US presidential election.

Please note this event is taking place between 6pm-7.15pm BST.
