What does the vice president do?

What does the vice president do? It’s a top government job, but what does being vice president mean? AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin Joshua Holzer, Westminster College On Jan. 20, Kamala Harris will become vice president of the United States – the first woman, the first person of South Asian descent, and the first African American to do so. Harris will also become the first vice president to have graduated from a historically black college or university. Each of these achievements is significant in its own right. However, the vice presidency itself has traditionally been a relatively insignificant position, though the office has become more influential in recent years. John Adams, the nation’s first vice pres...

Trump supporters seeking more violence could target state capitols during inauguration – here’s how cities can prepare

Trump supporters seeking more violence could target state capitols during inauguration – here's how cities can prepare The FBI says armed protests are planned at all 50 state capitols ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Paul Weaver/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Jennifer Earl, University of Arizona Americans witnessed an alarming and deadly failure in planning and policing at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The FBI failed to sound intelligence alarms, including about dozens of targets on the terrorist watch list traveling to Washington, D.C. U.S. Park Police, D.C. police and the National Guard, who collectively policed the “Save America” rally that preceded the riot, deviated from common crowd-control techniques by allow...

Why Trump’s challenges to democracy will be a big problem for Biden

Why Trump's challenges to democracy will be a big problem for Biden Just because he’s leaving office doesn’t mean Donald Trump will stop being a threat to democracy. AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin James D. Long, University of Washington and Victor Menaldo, University of Washington When a mob attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and stopped Congress from certifying Joe Biden as the nation’s next president, it was scary – and fatal for at least five people. But it did not pose a serious threat to the nation’s democracy. An attempt at an illegal power grab somehow keeping Donald Trump in the Oval Office was never likely to happen, let alone succeed. Trump always lacked the authority, and the mass support, required to steal an election he overwhelmingl...

Joe Biden wins the election, and now has to fight the one thing Americans agree on: the nation’s deep division

Joe Biden wins the election, and now has to fight the one thing Americans agree on: the nation's deep division AAP/AP/Carolyn Kaster Jared Mondschein, University of Sydney A timeless tradition in political journalism is trying to find a narrative that explains an electoral outcome. A widely accepted narrative to explain Barack Obama’s win over John McCain in 2008 was that Americans wanted to embrace the “change” candidate who appeared the most dissimilar to then-President George W Bush. The narrative four years later in 2012 was that Republican Mitt Romney was too “elite” to resonate with American voters, and Obama was returned. Then in 2016, it was that Hillary Clinton was so confident of becoming president, she overlooked “Middle America”. ...

Jonathan Newton /The Washington Post via Getty Images Brian J Purnell, Bowdoin College; Morgan Marietta, University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Neta C. Crawford, Boston University The American public has had its say and for the first time in a generation denied a sitting president a second term. President’s Trump’s tenure lasted just four years, but in that time he dragged policy on an array of key issues in a dramatic new direction. Joe Biden’s victory, confirmed by the Associated Press late morning on Nov. 7, presents an opportunity to reset the White House agenda and put it on a different course. Th...

To stay or cut away? As Trump makes baseless claims, TV networks are faced with a serious dilemma

To stay or cut away? As Trump makes baseless claims, TV networks are faced with a serious dilemma Evan Vucci/AP Denis Muller, University of Melbourne In the United States, democratic norms are breaking down. The president, Donald Trump, baselessly claimed at a White House press conference on Friday morning, Australian time, that the presidential election has been stolen from him by fraudulent and corrupt electoral processes. This confronted the television networks, whose job is to report the news, with an acute dilemma. In an already volatile political atmosphere, do they go on reporting these lies, laced with an undertone of veiled incitement to violence? Or do they cut away on the grounds that by continuing to broadcast this stuff, they ...

Biden headed for narrow victory in US presidential election

Biden headed for narrow victory in US presidential election Biden headed for narrow victory in US presidential election Adrian Beaumont, University of Melbourne Note: This piece was updated on November 5 Joe Biden is now poised to win the US presidency. The mail-in votes in Wisconsin and Michigan have overturned Trump’s election night leads. Biden won Wisconsin by 0.6%, and is clearly going to win Michigan. He leads there by 1.2% with 97% in, and the remainder is likely to heavily favour Biden. Those two states give Biden 253 Electoral Votes. Pennsylvania does not expect to count all its mail until Saturday AEDT. Trump currently leads by six points with 83% in. New York Times analyst Nate Cohn says the remaining mail votes should be more than enough for Biden to overturn that...

Re-election hopes fading, Trump tries for an election win in the courts

Re-election hopes fading, Trump tries for an election win in the courts Evan Vucci/AP Sarah John, Flinders University Facing the gradual erosion of early leads in several battleground states — and increasingly likely defeat in the presidential election — the Trump campaign is launching a well-planned legal assault to challenge the validity of ballots and the process of vote-counting itself. The Biden campaign is responding with an equally well-coordinated legal defence and a grassroots fundraising effort called the “Biden Fight Fund”. Once again, the courts will be called in to resolve a US presidential election, although it is unlikely any rulings will change the results significantly — unless the election comes down to extremely narrow ma...
