Reasons to worry about US election: The outcome of the US election is still wide open, with plenty of room for mistakes by President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden. The contest will not be decided by traditional election dynamics or the economy. The winner will be the candidate who best comes to terms with the deep anger and bitterness which has resulted from dramatic social and economic change in America. But a bigger danger looms: Trump’s potential to undermine the elections and throw the entire American system into chaos, writes John Kornblum.
