On our last show before the presidential election, Up w/ Chris Hayes will be examining the campaigns’ all-important get-out-the-vote strategies, and the cutting-edge campaign science that has given the Obama campaign an edge when it comes to persuading voters and getting them out to the polls. We’ll also look at what the record levels of spending in this, the first national campaign of the post-Citizens United era, tell us about the impact that ruling has had on our politics. And we’ll dive into some of the most important state-level ballot initiatives across the country, on issues like marijuana legalization and same-sex marriage.
