The Means Report: Political Scientist Explains What Factors Into The Presidential Election

Augusta, GA — After months of campaigns, debates, and scandals we are closing in on election day and the selection of the next President of the United States. There is a lot at stake and a lot that comes into determining which candidate will walk away with the vote, so we turned to Dr. Craig Albert — a political scientist and assistant professor at Augusta University.

Dr. Albert drives home the importance of the millennial vote in this election. He explains that many of his students have been disappointed by both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, especially during the three presidential debates. Neither candidate has gone far in winning over the vote of this key demographic, and many are not sure if they will even bother to cast a vote. If they do, the millennials have the ability to make a significant impact on the outcome of this election.

Wikileaks and Russia also have great significance in deciding who will be our next president. Dr. Albert explains what drives Wikileaks founder Julian Assange – including what stake he has in the election – and why Russia cares who we election — specifically which candidate they are most fearful of.Part 2
