Pollster Pitfalls

Pollster Pitfalls

By Peach Fish Productions

The Gist

Wednesday, 14 October

On the Gist, an Alaskan drama. In the interview, Mike talks with Robert Cahaly, head pollster of the Atlanta-based Trafalgar Group. Cahaly explains their polling methodology in gathering accurate opinion data, why social desirability bias comes into play, and how his team was able to predict Trump’s win in 2016. Now he posits that in 2020 Trump has more support than the polls could be showing.  In the spiel, Kabuki-style hearings continue for Amy Coney Barrett.
