Why Did America Not Reject Fascism By A Landslide?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Arun Gupta about America not rejecting fascism.

The day after a momentous but anti-climactic election day there is no definitive answer as to who will be the next President of the United States. But, projections show that former Vice President Joe Biden will likely eke out a win. Going into the election polls showed Biden with a large lead nationwide and narrow leads in states like Texas and Florida. But President Donald Trump won those two large states, making the race more competitive than expected. What does Biden’s probable narrow victory mean?
