US Elections

Jerry Mayer is a professor at the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University, a self-proclaimed obsessive about all things election-related, and the author of Running on Race: Racial Politics in Political Campaigns 1960 – 2000. He joined Wendy ten days before Election Day in the US to discuss everything from the Electoral College to the overlooked implications of high voter turnout.

This could be the year that Americans find out that their simple assumption that we do elections well or right will be forever destroyed.
