The Economist: All Audio
Oct 28, 2016 Trailing in the polls, Donald Trump has kept up a drumbeat of warnings about a "rigged system" that's working against his chances of beating Hillary Clinton and winning the presidency. But is the U.S. election system really rigged — or riggable? Celeste and John pose the question to Dana Perino, White House press secretary under former President George W. Bush and now host of Fox News Channel's "The Five" and the "I'll Tell You What" podcast. Then we jump to Nairobi, Kenya, for a talk with Daniel Knowles, who covers the corrupt and sometimes violent politics of sub-Saharan Africa for The Economist, about what rigged elections actually look like.
