On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 is an election year. Our crackerjack team of politicos and pollsters takes a look at the electoral landscape and discusses where the presidential contest stands amid the coronavirus crisis. Is Donald Trump or Joe Biden perceived to have the upper hand in terms of how to handle the pandemic? Are the candidates viewed favorably among voters? And, will it come down to the pandemic or the economy come Election Day? We have all that and more on this week’s episode.
Then, Kathleen Weldon, Director of Data Operations and Communications at the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, joins the team to discuss Roper’s project to preserve the data from COVID-19 public opinion polls.
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.
