Is American democracy on the line? A mid-terms preview

By Global

In less than a week America will head to the polls for the midterms - the first national elections of the Biden presidency since the January 6th insurrection.

Biden has told Americans that democracy is on the ballot - with hundreds of Republican candidates refusing to say whether they’ll accept the election outcome next week. Many more within the GOP continue to accept and propagate ‘The Big Lie’- that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump.

And yet the Republican Party is rising, not falling in the polls in the final week. Have Democrats misjudged this campaign’s message? And what will it mean for the Biden presidency if he loses one or both chambers of Congress?

Emily and Lewis will also discuss dire warnings about the economy from the Bank of England and the prospect of a recession which lasts until 2024.
