Politics War Room with James Carville and Al Hunt

Ben Ginsberg and Mayor Michael Coleman

October 2, 2020

In This Episode:

The first presidential debate is over and James and Al declare Joe Biden the clear winner. Following favorable post-debate coverage across the platforms, and with mail-in ballot use breaking records and banking Democratic votes, it’s not looking good for President Trump.  Ben Ginsburg wonders whether he’s running effectively as an incumbent or if the party will collapse after he leaves office.  Meanwhile Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman questions recent Democratic strategy in the Ohio battleground and whether the Biden campaign is repeating Hillary’s mistakes in misunderstanding the electorate there.
