This week’s Poll Hub podcast digs deep into the data from our latest national survey of American adults. Why do a majority of Americans say President Trump is doing a good job on the economy but say they will definitely vote against him in 2020? The Poll Hub team has some possible answers for this historic result.
Then the HuffPo’s (@HuffPostPol) Polling Editor Ariel Edwards-Levy (@aedwardslevy) joins us from Washington to explain why so many pollsters are up in arms over a recent Axios post. The story reported on a poll about how Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) could spell trouble for Democrats in 2020. The problem is the poll was anonymously leaked and Axios provided no details about how it was conducted, who paid for it, who was polled, or question wording – making it impossible to evaluate the accuracy or credibility of the survey.
