On this week’s episode of our podcast, Poll Hub, Nate Cohn, domestic correspondent for The Upshot at The New York Times, joins the team.
Few polls have been released since the last Democratic primary debate, and supporters of the lower-tier candidates are in an uproar. We discuss why this poll shortage has occurred and whether the criticism is warranted. Plus, we re-visit the use of public opinion polls as debate criteria and whether there is a viable alternative.
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.
