Conspiracy Theories Around The 2020 Election

Nov 5, 2020

Conspiracy theories have made their way into mainstream politics, with QAnon and misinformation about large-scale voter fraud among the most visible. Today we talk about a new study on misinformation and conspiracy theories around the 2020 election.

We talk to the co-author behind that study find out where these ideas come from, how they spread on social media, and how they might have impacted voters this year. And we go in-depth on conspiracy theories like QAnon, which is getting increased attention this week after QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene won a House seat in Georgia.
