Poll Hub celebrates its fiftieth episode!

On this special episode, the Poll Hub team clears up a bit of confusion. Dr. Lee M. Miringoff found himself amid a Twitterstorm last week about comments he made during a recent interview on the Hill.tv’s, What America’s Thinking. Find out just what Dr. Miringoff did and did not say in reference to the analysis of 2016.

Then, a look at Americans’ views about the media. Last week’s mass shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland brought renewed attention to President Donald Trump’s critical statements about the press. Do Americans agree? We break down the poll numbers.

And, the role of excitement and demography in the outcome of the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district. Yep, we are still talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset victory!

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.
