Event Details

The legitimacy of American elections was unchallenged for so long that they came to be accepted as political bedrock, certain to survive even the most severe earthquakes. But as the country approaches the first presidential election post January 6, the most serious insurrection since the Civil War, the foundation of the entire American electoral experiment is in danger of collapse. Candidates regularly challenge the results in courts, supposedly impartial election officials proudly declare their biases and millions of Americans dismiss the certified outcomes.

In this episode, Common Ground with Jane Whitney’s panel discusses the fate of the electoral system, the future of the two-party system, the national malaise that has left millions at both ends of the political spectrum feeling disenfranchised and the elevation of performative politics that threatens to sweep aside our constitutional guarantees.
