Oct 20, 2020

In 2016, polls in key states underestimated the chances of a Donald Trump victory. This hour, how have pollsters changed the way they measure public opinion? Can we still rely on election polling? 

Coming up, we hear from a pollster and survey researcher and talk about how to understand polling in the days leading up to Election Day. 

Many pollsters are reporting a double digit Biden lead, but how could that change in the next two weeks? Will Election Day results match what’s been predicted right now in the polls? 

We want to hear from you. What questions do you have about polling?
