Legendary Democratic Consultant Bob Shrum joins Beats & Eats to discuss the state of the 2020 race. Shrum, a political veteran, who has worked on such Presidential campaigns as Ted Kennedy (80), Al Gore (2000), and John Kerry (2004), weighs in on the recent events like Covid-19 which have changed the political landscape this year. Shrum believes this year feels a lot like the 1980 race, when incumbents were wiped out. He sees challenger Joe Biden as the favorite to beat Donald Trump in November, but he adds a lot can happen between now and November, and even after November.
Shrum is currently the Director of the Center for the Political Future and the Carmen H. and Louis Warschaw Chair in Practical Politics at USC, where he is a Professor of the Practice of Political Science in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences.
