As the nation remains glued to the returns in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona, we focus on some of what we can learn from this week’s vote.

UMBC political scientist Tom Schaller joins us to talk about why the polls leading up to this week were so wrong, what a potentially divided Congress could mean for coronavirus recovery, and why both parties failed to achieve a decisive win.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
