January 11th, 2020

In this episode of Civil Discord, Jaffee and Phillips invite their colleague Michael Binder, Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the Public Opinion Research Lab at the University of North Florida, to discuss election polling. It is this polling that drives the horse race journalism dominating the political news cycle, as well as determining who can participate in the Democratic Party debates.  In this lively episode we learn about the methods, techniques, and pitfalls in election polling, and comment on the current state of the Democratic party primary contest as indicated by the polls.
