Help us out! We have a survey and would really appreciate it if you could give us just a few minutes of your time to fill it out! ElectionCollege.com/Survey ___________________ October Surprises have had a name since the early 1970s, but they've been around for a lot longer than that! Sometimes they're intentional on the part of the opposing party. Other times, they're just the result of bad luck. Join us as we discuss a few outstanding ones! Van Buren tries to expose election fraud, Garfield can't remember if he wrote a letter about imigrants, FDR loses the black vote and wins it back just as fast, Nixon slides one by, Reagan "lucks out" on the Iran hostage crisis, W gets a DUI, and several others! ___________________________ We recorded an audiobook! It’s about the letters between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr before their fateful duel.
