On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, pro-Trump insurgents invaded the U.S. Capitol Building to thwart the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election. How could this unthinkable event happen? Do Americans agree with the actions of the rioters, and what is the challenge for the nation? We discuss. 

Then, it was the biggest story of the week prior to the violence at the Capitol. Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated their Republican opponents in Georgia’s Senate runoff races. With Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote in this divided Senate, what does the Biden Administration need to do to capitalize on Democrats’ congressional control?  

Plus, the U.S. Census missed an important end-of-year deadline. What are the implications? We offer our analysis on this week’s episode of our podcast, Poll Hub.  

And, don’t forget to check out our series of free, short online courses. It’s called The Marist Poll Academy. 


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.
