The University of Pennsylvania just released the results of a longitudinal study which examines racial prejudice in the United States during the age of Donald Trump. While conventional wisdom has claimed prejudice has increased, researchers out of the University of Pennsylvania maintain there is evidence that it may be on a decline. On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, we take a deep dive into the study and assess how these statistics compare with other data on the subject.
Then, we speak with Scott E. Page, professor at the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor and the author of The Model Thinker. In this insightful interview, Page explains what it means to be a “model thinker,” the benefits of the theory, and what pollsters can learn from this approach.
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.
