US Election Watch - Part Five: Ali Velshi

The Take with Tom Clark

Is Donald Trump dangerous for democracy? In our final instalment of our U.S. Election Watch, host Tom Clark sits down with Ali Velshi of MSNBC. They discuss the final stretch of the campaign trail and what has driven Americans to such polar ends of their political spectrum. While some polls are predicting a Biden win, Ali Velshi points out that the information we take in depends on the media bubble we're in. As someone covering many of America's swing states, he sees the race as much tighter.  And as for Canada? "Canada would do better under a more normal president." That's not necessarily democratic or republican, but either way, we are paying close attention.
