Dole Institute: Political Campaigns, Top to Bottom – #4 – Polling, Data, and Predicting the Outcome of Elections


Polling is always one of the focal points for the public’s attention leading up to elections. In 2016, very few pollsters forecasted the Trump win accurately.

Dietrich and his guests will glean real-world examples from the midterms as they happen, offering audience members an unparalleled look at the inner workings of today’s campaigns.
