In this week’s episode of Poll Hub, we dive deep into brand new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll results. Topping the rundown: perceptions of the Democratic candidates. In terms of favorability, Elizabeth Warren runs circles around her Democratic challengers among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, but attitudes shift when looking at the broader electorate. We explain.
And, the NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll shows consistent support for gun restrictions in the United States. We share where there is the most consensus as well as the most division and take on the topic of why Congress has yet to act.
Then, scientifically speaking! We look at Americans’ perceptions of scientists, compliments of a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.
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.
