With the U.S. presidential election just weeks away, all eyes are on American voters. Beyond the Washington punditry, what are the issues really driving Americans and influencing their decisions at the polls? Local journalists, with their ears to the ground, are some of the best sources for understanding a community and the issues that animate it.
The German Marshall Fund will host esteemed journalists from key states in America's South and Midwest to share views from their respective regions and discuss the pulse of both the presidential race and other down-ballot contests. To what extent have the pandemic, America’s race reckoning, and scandal in the White House impacted perceptions and priorities? Or will the perennial kitchen-table issues—the economy, healthcare—prove to override the drama in Washington?
