Midterm election voting is already underway in many states. What information can we gather from the early vote tallies? What are the pitfalls analysts can encounter? On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, Michael McDonald (@ElectProject on Twitter), Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida and the man behind the U.S. Elections Project, joins the crew to share his expertise.
Plus, our Marist Poll team has new poll numbers out. We break down our latest national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll as well as our battleground state polls of Mississippi and Georgia, conducted with NBC News.
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.
