Road to November

Show Summary

Road To November is a web-based video series, produced by the New York Times, and released on their official website. For this series, Times journalists Jennifer Steinhauer and Monica Almeida traveled the breadth of the continental United States, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. Over the course of their 2,900-mile quest, mostly Steinhauer and Almeida interviewed a number of voters in hotly contested swing states like Iowa, Nebraska, and New Jersey. The series' title was a play on words, referring to the nearing election, and to the specifics of the journey, which was largely made by car, on Interstate 80. Highlights from the series include the journalists' stop in Naperville, Illinois, a highly republican area with very mixed feelings about Illinois' most famous adopted son, then presidential hopeful Barack Obama. In another notable episode, Steinhauer and Almeida stopped in Omaha to witness a massive campaign rally headed by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. This rally made an impression on both journalists, who noted the intense, almost worshipful response of the crowd to Palin and presidential candidate John McCain.
