Join Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, as he moderates an insightful discussion about the events shaping the 2012 Presidential Election.

Bitter political divisions polarize the nation.  With an ever evolving contest for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, who will be the likely nominee?  What are President Barack Obama’s re-election chances?  What are the likely roles of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements, and what is the overall sentiment of voters toward the future of the country?

Hosted by Marist College, leading academics and journalists provide an insider’s look at the worlds of polling, political reporting, and life on the campaign trail.

Featuring the latest results from the NBC News/Marist Poll and the McClatchy-Marist Poll, panelists include:

Dr. Barbara L. Carvalho
