About this episode:
So far this year, we’ve heard the President of the United States say the only way he’ll lose his bid for re-election is if the vote is rigged. He's said he may not accept the results of the election. He’s even suggested that people vote twice. (That’s illegal, by the way...)
We’re 55 days out from the election, and this year is shaping up to be a wild ride. President Trump is sowing the seeds of distrust and more people will be voting by mail due to fears of coronavirus. It’s possible we may not know the results of the election by the time we go to bed on November 3rd.
Jonathan Allen is a senior political analyst for NBC News. He sat down with Trymaine Lee for Into America to talk about all the ways this election could play out in the days leading up to, and after, November 3rd.
