In this week’s episode of Poll Hub, a look at the midterm primary results in Minnesota and Wisconsin. How did the polls help inform in the days and weeks leading up to these primaries? Why does timing matter? We have the answers.
Plus, he’s baaack! Harry Enten, Senior Writer and Analyst for CNN Politics, returns to the Poll Hub table. Enten recently asked the Marist Poll to survey President Donald Trump’s job performance on a scale from excellent to poor. Enten explains why that question wording allows for a deeper dive into the president’s job approval rating especially in comparison to past presidents, and what those opinions could mean for this year’s midterm elections.
And, Rasmussen Reports recently announced its Citizen-Sourced National Midterm Election Polling Project. Is it a good idea to ask the public to pay for polls? The Poll Hub team breaks it down.
