Why You Can Trust the Polls Leading up to the Election

National polls continue to show Joe Biden in the lead over President Trump, but there has been this lingering skepticism about the polls since the 2016 election, weren’t they wrong last time?Chis Kahn, polling editor at Reuters, joins us for what’s different and why there’s more reason to trust them.Polls are doing a better job of reading Trump’s base, there are fewer undecided voters, and there is a bigger focus on state polls. Next, a study out of Britain this week said that people with detectable antibodies for the coronavirus fell by about 27% over a period of three months over the summer, calling in to question how long immunity lasts.But health experts say this is not a cause to worry, antibodies tend to wane over time naturally.Apoorva Mandavilli, reporter at the NY Times, joins us for what to know about this antibody study. Finally, it’s important not to lose sight of our mental health during the pandemic and as daylight saving time ends, the nights get longer and winter approaches, there could be a collision of pandemic depression and seasonal depression.Experts say it’s time to lay the groundwork to help avoid it getting the best of you.Chelsea Cirruzzo, contributor to the Washington Post, joins us for more.

Keith Raniere, Founder of NXIVM Cult, Sentenced to 120 Years in Prison

Keith Raniere, the founder of NXIVM, which has been referred to as a sex cult by some, was sentenced to 120 years in prison for sex trafficking and fraud on Tuesday.Women in a secretive sect of NXIVM were said to be forced into sex with Raniere and also branded with his initials.Pilar Melendez, reporter for the Daily Beast, was in the courtroom for his sentencing and tells us how it went down. Next, as cases of coronavirus surge and hospitalizations also increase, hospitals have to walk a delicate line on whether to cancel elective and non-essential surgeries again.When these surgeries were cancelled early in the pandemic, hospitals lost out on a lot of revenue and patients had to postpone procedures like knee and hip replacements among other things.Melanie Evans, reporter at the WSJ, joins us for how hospitals are better prepared to keep these surgeries going. Finally, the story of Hunter Biden’s emails and business dealings has failed to gain big traction aside from some conservative outlets.The focus has shifted to suppression of the story by the mainstream media and less on the content of the emails and salacious pictures found on the laptop.Tina Nguyen, White House reporter at Politico, joins us for more.

NASA Confirms Water Found on the Sunny Parts of the Moon

Cool space news as a study has confirmed that NASA has discovered water on the sunny parts of the Moon and not just in cold, shadowed areas.The water is not in puddles or icy patches, but rather in it is embedded in glass created during impacts on the moon, so the next step is to figure out how to mine this water.Miriam Kramer, space reporter at Axios, joins us to talk about Moon water. Next, we are one week out from Election Day! Tens of millions of people have already voted and Joe Biden continues to lead in the polls.Still, this race is not over and President Trump is keeping up his heavy campaign schedule hitting multiple battleground states and the Senate could also be in play for Democrats.Brett Samuels, White House reporter at the Hill, joins us for what the candidates strategies are for the final week. Finally, looking ahead to Thanksgiving… there could be a glut of big turkeys this year.Farmers had to try and predict the demand and processing schedule for the bird during a pandemic and fear that there might not be enough small turkeys.Driving the worry, family gatherings could be smaller and people may be looking for protein alternatives.Laura Reiley, business of food reporter at the Washington Post, joins us for too many fat turkeys.

DOJ Sues Google Over Its Dominance in the Online Search and Search Advertising Markets

The Justice Department on Tuesday filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing them of monopolizing the online search and search advertising markets.It is no secret that Google is a major player in these areas, but this is just a first step in what could be a lengthy court battle.Kyle Daly, technology editor at Axios, joins us for what the DOJ is alleging and what it could mean for consumers.
