Washington Week

Measuring the Mood of America

Special | 21m 35s | Video has closed captioning.

As you dig in to your Thanksgiving leftover, we dive deep into the American mood. Concerns about terrorism, distrust of political leaders and a spirited debate about who's best to lead our country are topics of conversation around the country. Gwen Ifill discusses this all with The New York Times' Peter Baker, The Washington Post's Dan Balz and BBC's Kim Ghattas.
