Thompson talks with Spectrum on impact of Reade allegation, election
Margaret Susan Thompson, associate professor of history and political science, says that the Reade allegation will probably not have a big impact on how voters decide in the 2020 Presidential election. Even voters who believe Reade may still vote for Biden. "As disturbing as these allegations against Vice President Biden are, similar allegations have been made against President Trump... I think [voting for Biden is] a legitimate choice to make that does not negate the possibility that Tara Reade is telling the truth." Thompson was interviewed for the Spectrum News segment "Biden to Choose a Woman Running Mate While Faced With Tara Reade Allegation."
