Transparency Series Seminar: Polling with Amanda Cox
October 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
Join us for a discussion with Amanda Cox from the Upshot at the New York Times who will discuss polling and its importance in the political races. As the 2018 midterm election nears, we pore over opinion polls looking for subtle (or not so subtle) clues about how things will fare on November 6. When looking at the race for the house and for the senate, polls vary wildly. Which polls are right? Or reliable? To journalists, of course, the polls themselves aren’t the story, they help tell us a story. The narrative power of polls extends far beyond a single number on a given day. Taken collectively and in combination with other data, we can tell deep stories about the nature of our public’s opinions.
