On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, we discuss the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that it is illegal for an employer to fire a person based on his or her sexual orientation. Public opinion has been trending in this direction for decades. So, what took the Court so long to catch up? We discuss.
Then, a recent Gallup Poll highlights a decline in Americans’ sense of national pride. Is it a lack of patriotism, or is something else going on? We pick up those questions and more on this week’s episode of 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.
