The global view on democracy in America from The Economist.

Every Friday Economist correspondents John Prideaux, Charlotte Howard and Jon Fasman explore one theme shaping American politics in a momentous election year. 

Joined by colleagues reporting from across the US and the rest of the world, they dig deep into history, culture, and, of course, economics. 

Together they provide a unique perspective on the 2020 elections and the road to power in America. And answer questions you didn’t know you had, like: What connects an Oval Office portrait to the assassination of Iran’s top general? How did the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan shape Iowa’s rural/urban divide? Who was the last Socialist to run for president?

The Economist's team of experts explore American politics in an extraordinary election year.

US editor John Prideaux and his colleagues from across the US and around the world go beyond the headlines and the horserace to delve deeper into the race for White House - and why it matters so much.
