Join us for a deep dive into the science and methodology behind political polling. We’ll look at how polls are conducted, what they can and cannot tell you, and what can cause some of them to go wrong. We’ll discuss what questions you should ask to assess the validity of poll results and the claims being made about the findings? And we’ll consider whether the ongoing pandemic, or unprecedented Republican and Democratic efforts to influence when and how voters cast their ballots, make accurate polling this election cycle more difficult than ever.
