On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, podcasting has marked a milestone. How? We speak with Tom Webster, Senior Vice President of Edison Research about the results of its latest Infinite Dial study.
But first, President Donald Trump invoked recent poll numbers to bolster his argument that the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a “witch hunt.” Is President Trump’s assertion an appropriate use of the data? We take on that question and explain the outrage of some highly regarded pollsters.
Did someone say “foul?” It’s that time of year when hope springs eternal for Major League Baseball fans. Opening Day is days away, and Poll Hub’s intrepid baseball fans, Dr. Lee M. Miringoff and Dr. Barbara Carvalho, have returned from Yankees Spring Training in Tampa. While on the ground, Miringoff, Carvalho, and good friend to The Marist Poll John Sparks had the opportunity speak with baseball fans about the current state of the game, including rule changes and ticket prices. You know how we love to ask questions! And we have the answers for you on this week’s Poll Hub!
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.
