Midterm election programming

As your audiences prepare to cast their ballots, we’re offing midterm election updates, insights and context from across our program portfolio:

Marketplace
Marketplace will cover the midterms with its own unique style: explanatory, revelatory – and sometimes irreverent. Election coverage will focus on money, including the nation’s current economic anxiety level. Programming highlights:

Marketplace Morning Report

  • Health care: The latest Marketplace-Edison research poll reveals healthcare is the top economic issue for all Americans, but with stark differences between political parties. While 28% of respondents cited healthcare as their top economic concern, only 16% of Republicans do, compared to 37% of Democrats. We’ll explore what’s behind this gap, and what it means this election season.
  • Tax cuts: We’ll examine how last year’s historic tax cuts are influencing people’s choices at the ballot box.
  • Candidates 101: We’ll uncover what it’s like to be a first-time candidate.

Marketplace

  • Trade: The latest Marketplace-Edison Research poll finds that 61 percent of Americans say maintaining good relationships with foreign allies is more important than protecting industries through the imposition of tariffs. At the same time, respondents say protecting U.S. jobs is more important than minimizing consumer impact. We’ll examine Americans’ trade war worries.
  • Billionaire donors: We’ll explain the spike in billionaires’ campaign donations – and where the money is going.
  • Housing and transportation: We’ll share the context behind California’s initiatives to repeal rent control and gas tax limits.

Marketplace Tech

  • Voting tech:
    • We’ll dig deeper into the latest Marketplace-Edison Research poll, which finds that 70 percent of people are ‘very concerned’ about foreign interference and the spread of false information about elections via social media.

  • Kevin Roose, who covers technology for the NYT, focuses on how social media is influencing our elections, including profiles on a couple in rural Pennsylvania who got rich by making a website that specialized in viral partisan content, and a mysterious Russian journalist – is he a spy or just a guy obsessed with viral news?

Marketplace Tech

  • Voting tech:
    • Travis County, Texas elections official Dana DeBeauvoir discusses the many different technology systems she’s tried, where things have landed for the midterms, and why she’s more concerned about the vulnerability of the voter registration database than the votes themselves.
    • We’ll dig deeper into the latest Marketplace-Edison Research poll, which finds that 70 percent of people are ‘very concerned’ about foreign interference and the spread of false information about elections via social media.
  • Voting as utility: We’ll talk to Candice Hoke, founding co-director of the Center for Cybersecurity & Privacy Protection, and the first regulatory professional to propose that voting systems should become critical infrastructure – that was in 2009. She explains the risks of leaving voting technology to privately owned companies, rather than a federally regulated public utility.
