The election countdown clock is now in its final digits and the candidates will be fighting up to the buzzer after a slew of bad campaign press for both major party nominees in the final month before voting day. Republican nominee Donald Trump took a hit in the polls in the beginning of October after the release of the Hollywood Access hot-mic tape while Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton continues to be dogged by her use of a private email server. The controversy and negativity have not been lost on voters, many of whom report being undecided about voting. According to analysts the game is now to drive turnout, turning out voters who lack enthusiasm about their choices.

The Democratic National Committee faces negative publicity for a continued stream of leaked emails. The emails show an apparent bias against Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders by party officials, including Town Hall questions fed to the Clinton campaign by interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile while she worked for CNN. The DNC’s second in command, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, joins Matter of Fact for a discussion on the controversies surrounding the DNC and the Party’s efforts to rise above the tightening race.
