    I enjoyed listening to more about how Marist polling is done. I think it’s a miss if you don’t predict who will actually be elected president. That’s the really interesting part of presidential polling; which candidate will be elected, not who will win the popular vote. As we all know the popular vote has been meaningless 2x in the last 20 years.
