What Are the Polls Actually Telling Us? | See How They Run
byThe Nation Magazine

On this episode of See How They Run, we’re talking about the thing that probably defines the political horserace more than anything else: polling.

First, we're joined by Danielle Deiseroth, executive director of progressive polling firm Data for Progress, to talk about how polls are really conducted and how we should think about them. Then, Josh Cohen, the political scientist behind the Ettingermentum newsletter, takes us through what the 2024 polls are really saying about Biden and Trump’s chances in November.
