The Democratic National Convention kicks off today

The Democratic National Convention kicks off today. The completely virtual event will play out among four stage setups in New York City, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Wilmington, Delaware, and will culminate with the formal nomination of former Vice President Joe Biden and his newly minted vice-presidential running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris. Usually, these conventions are over-the-top affairs with hours of programming, but experts say this year’s scaled-down versions (the DNC will only air two hours of prime-time programming a day) could have a long-term impact on how conventions are held. This week’s convention comes as a new CNN poll reveals Biden’s lead over Trump tightening significantly over the last few months.
