Lots of presidential candidates make bold promises, but only one candidate in the 2016 presidential election is offering the promise of eternal life.

That's Zoltan Istvan, the first-ever presidential candidate from the Transhumanist Party, who is running for president against Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and other major party candidates. He wants to use technology and science to extend the human lifespan, improve our bodies' abilities, and solve our national problems. And even though he has no real chance of winning, he's using the 2016 election as a way to raise awareness about his futurist vision for America.

In this episode of REAL FUTURE, Fusion's Alexis Madrigal hits the campaign trail with Zoltan to figure out why his campaign is gaining a surprising amount of momentum, and what he hopes to accomplish.
