Now On PBS

Season 4, Episode 41 of 51

The state of Virginia has not voted for a Democratic President since 1964, but this year its 13 electoral votes are up for grabs as late polls show the race too close to call. NOW on PBS goes behind the national polls and punditry and into living rooms of real Virginia voters to learn how they'll be making their decisions. Military families, retirees, and blue-collar workers of all political stripes share their concerns about faith, the war, and making ends meet in troubling economic times. Also on the show, an update on the economic crisis. As the government expands its protective reach into the private sector, now including banks, how will this ease the financial burden on private citizens? NOW checks in with the AFL-CIO's Damon Silvers, who has been closely involved in Congressional negotiations for the financial rescue plan, for answers and insight.
