On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, The Marist Poll has just released its November America Now: National Outlook Index, and the mood of the nation is more wary. Which indicators have shifted the overall index? We discuss.
Then, we always hear about the horse race, but what about questions like have you ever been in jail? Sound far-fetched? Believe it or not, poll questions like that were once asked. We speak with Karlyn Bowman, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, about her research into how poll questions have evolved over time.
And, don’t forget to check out our series of free, short online courses. It’s called The Marist Poll Academy.
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.
