She apparently no one's talking about but it could have a serious impact on the presidential election talking about the foreclosure crisis Elizabeth MacDonald joins us now.
-- so that I've never been as interested or excited about a topic as this one.
Because no one's talking about it you'll let's talk to any pollster who's looking -- voter turnout and they will tell you they have no idea what's going to happen in this election.
Because they don't know where the voters went -- -- affected by foreclosures three point seven million foreclosures.
In California alone.
Already University of California river -- had to say look.
Voter turnout was suppressed in 2008 because of foreclosures that here's the deal you can see in this heat map the hot spots that what we're going to be talking about.
California Florida and Nevada of course have been.
In obesity foreclosure hot -- that -- problems but all Ohio which is voted for every winning candidate since 1964.
And the people who weren't doing the polling for this election or seriously at a loss.

Are more than likely to -- -- Because they're they're less likely to trust they have more anxiety they don't feel like going out even vote and when that happens.
They're neighbors did the same thing it's sort of sweeps the -- into the neighborhood.
Of where these -- closures or even people wanted to go out and vote.
