Welcome back to Poll Party! This week new hosts Rory Dineen and Adam Jolley take over for Adam Dietrich fulltime. They kick the episode off discuss some of the latest polling and public opinion news, including Nate Cohen’s tweet thread on the consistent of online polls recently compared to phone polls. They then discuss the comments made by Frank Luntz on how he thinks $2 billion is going o be spent on just 6% of the population in the 2020 election, and how this goes back to the conversation from the last episode on if we should only target certain competitive areas with polling.
They then discuss the most recent Democratic debate and talk about the shifts in the poll that have occurred, and if it has really changed anything in the race.
Rory brings up a new poll of the week, this time stepping away from political candidate polls and focusing on a public opinion tracker run by the Kaiser Family Foundation on the favorability rating of the Affordable Care Act.
To close out the episode Rory and Adam introduce a segment called Quiz of the week. They both find out what Horror Movie Character they are. It got a little real for Adam. This is probably one of the best new segments we’ve done!
