About the Show
In November, American voters will go to the polls to decide whether President Donald Trump or his Democratic challenger will lead the country for the next four years. In a polarised and bitterly divided country, voter enthusiasm is already at record levels, with turnout predicted to be the highest in a century. FRONTLINE’s The Choice 2020 will explore the character of each candidate by examining formative episodes in their lives through interviews with those who know them best. An antidote to the shrill soundbites, partisan spin and superficial coverage that have come to characterise US presidential campaigns, The Choice has earned a wide audience and a reputation for its clear, unbiased reporting.
