    Default Zuckerman Thinks He Can Beat Hoffa and Win the Teamsters Election

    The struggle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for the White House is crowding out much of the other news of the day, including the battle for the presidency of the 1.3 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
    It’s an uphill battle for Zuckerman. Hoffa was first elected in 1998 and has been re-elected easily three times since then. In the most recent election, in 2011, Hoffa won about 60 percent of the vote in a three-way race against challengers Fred Gegare and Sandy Pope.
    According to Zuckerman, Hoffa has benefitted from a pattern of low voter turnout in past elections. Turnout has fallen since rank-and-file elections for president were first introduced in 1991, with 2011 marking an all-time low. In that year, only about 250,000 union members filled out ballots and sent them in.
