Election Jitters

America’s 2020 presidential election caused unprecedented jitters. Tens of thousands of mail ballots were erroneously issued or went astray. Both Trump and Biden said they would only accept the results if the election “is not rigged.” Revelations of undenied emails implicating Biden in a robust Chinese kick-back scheme—with Twitter and major media censoring the information—threw the campaigns into last-minute chaos. Political street violence broke out. Variations in mail-in deadlines among the states and ballot discrepancies guaranteed that election night would become weeks of uncertainty, claims, and counterclaims. Seasoned political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and threat analyst Ken Abramowitz joined Edwin to examine the last-minute controversies and consequences.
