Midterm Mayhem episode 9: Would robots be Republicans or Democrats?

If a robot had the capacity for human-level intelligence, would that make it a person? Will we end up fighting with our electric cars over whether to vote for Malia Obama or Charlotte Clinton in 2052? We discuss with tech writer and new Fusion employee Alexis Madrigal. We also discuss instances of voter fraud versus voter suppression, give that pig castrating ad the pop-up video treatment, and ask the fine folks on Tinder who they’re voting for in this election.

Watch “Midterm Mayhem” LIVE Sunday-Thursday at 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT on the Fusion network and streaming (plus full episodes, clips, and other mind-blowingly awesome stuff) at fusion.tv/mayhem.
