No Matter Who Wins, Many Americans See A Moral Loss

Reset explores what record voter turnout means for some Americans — particularly people of color — as we watch an election on the razor’s edge.

It’s one of the closest presidential races in modern history but for Democrats, the 2020 election represents a shocking loss as the “blue wave” they were promised never came. And many communities of color who’ve been specifically targeted by the Trump administration’s policies over the last four years see the tight race as a slap in the face, regardless of who ultimately wins. Reset hears from listeners about how they feel about the results and where they think the country is headed.
