Illinois, Texas and Pennsylvania are the latest trio in our midterm election battleground state polls with NBC News. In this episode of Poll Hub we break down the numbers and assess the relevance of these states as we head into the thick of the election season.
Pennsylvania shocked the nation in the 2016 presidential election. So it’s no surprise that pollsters would turn to the Keystone State in 2018. But why survey the traditionally Republican state of Texas and the traditionally Democratic state of Illinois? We explain. Plus how education, gender, and enthusiasm factor into the midterm election battle.
And summer’s days are numbered. A look at the past summer jobs of the Poll Hub crew. How did these jobs impact the team’s future career paths? Trust us. This is a must listen!
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.
