“People do not need an example, but the opportunity to get up.” Report from Illinois – the state where Obama and Lincoln started

Less than a month remains before the US presidential election. At the finish line, candidates Trump and Biden are particularly active in fighting for the votes of the “centrist” regions – those who have voted for representatives of different parties in recent campaigns. And in 2020, anything can influence their choice: a pandemic, a crisis, protests, the problem of racism. As part of the special project RTVI, Harry Kniagnitsky travels to the “fluctuating” states. This time he came to Illinois and found out from local residents what kind of president they want to see at the head of the country.
