In this episode of Poll Hub, the debate over DACA.
According to a new Marist Poll, a majority of Americans disapprove of President Donald Trump’s move to end DACA, similar to the findings of other recent surveys. What does it mean when the polls converge? Can the average poll consumer trust the results? Does question wording matter? The Poll Hub team takes a deep dive into the issue.
Then, Poll Hub gets wonky. Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, and Dr. Barbara L. Carvalho, Director of The Marist College Poll, pull the curtain back on sample size and share with political journalist and tech entrepreneur Jay DeDapper what a margin of error really means. Plus, what do soup and polling have in common? The Poll Hub crew explains this seemingly odd analogy.
