During the spring semester at Marist College, The Marist Poll and the Poll Hub team welcomed four distinguished guests to campus as part of a special four-part series commemorating fifty years since 1968.
1968: The Year that Rocked American Politics focused on the tumultuous and tragic events of that pivotal year and its lasting impact on today’s political system. Each guest – E.J. Dionne, Jr. (syndicated columnist at The Washington Post and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution), Bob Herbert (journalist and writer and producer of the documentary, Against All Odds), Lynn Novick (co-producer and co-director with Ken Burns of the 10-part, 18-hour epic documentary, The Vietnam War), and Jeff Greenfield (author, journalist, and former aide to Robert F. Kennedy) — brought their own unique perspective and expertise to the series. Their individual appearances can be heard in previous podcasts.
In this week’s episode of Poll Hub, we share a roundup of our recordings with these four guests and feature previously unreleased audio from each of their appearances.
1968: The Year that Rocked American Politics was presented in conjunction with the class of the same name taught by Dr. Lee M. Miringoff.
About Poll Hub
Poll Hub goes behind the science to explain how polling works, what polls really show, and what the numbers really mean. Poll Hub is produced by The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, home of America’s leading independent college public opinion poll, The Marist Poll. Lee Miringoff (Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion), Barbara Carvalho (Director of The Marist Poll), and Jay DeDapper (Director of Innovation at The Marist Poll) dig deep to give you a look at the inner workings of polls and what they tell us about our world, our country, and ourselves.
