#55: Michi-can or Michi-can't you trust the polls?

Do you need an excuse to watch the new F/X OJ Simpson series? And do you need more yoga, more podcasts, or more women commentary? On all fronts, we got you covered.   Michi-can or Michi-can’t trust the polls? The Sanders Michigan upset had a lot of folks doing their usual polling handwringing. But don’t panic! FiveThirtyEight on MI Politico on MI WP on Michigan HP/Pollster on Michigan FiveThirtyEight on Sanders vs. Clinton voters   NeverTrump? What can we say about Trump and his supporters? Does he do well because of his hateful language, or despite it? Morning Consult YouGov/HP Trump question at the Democratic debate WP study on Trump voters Gallup on each GOP candidate's voters WP study on authoritarianism   We are the 14-49%! C’mon producers/hosts, you can do better! Studies show between 14-49% of 2016 prime-time AM/PM talkers are women. VOX/CAWP study of women talkers   You are the 21%! Hey, podcasts are totally a thing now. Forget the Serial effect, more like The Pollsters effect. Edison Research infinite dial   Just breathe Margie went to Tulum for relaxation, and she found...polling. Yoga Journal poll   Key Findings The moral of the Michigan michigoss: 1) we need more polling! and 2) we’re going to get more polling! Is Trump doing well because people are responding to racist language? or because they’re responding to his clarity of message? Or because they hate the establishment? No matter the answer, isn’t it time for all hands on deck? Remember you are already on the cutting edge of two trends: listening to women commentators and podcasting. If primary season is still getting you down, try some yoga, where women rule, and actual hand size is sometimes relevant, not some childish insult. Learn more about your ad choices.
