Poll Hub

The State of the Nation

June 12, 2020

On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, America is being rocked by a level of turmoil not seen since the 1960’s. How do Americans’ perceive the condition of the nation? Where do they see the United States heading? We analyze the recent polls on race relations, COVID-19, and the economy.

Then, it’s a familiar refrain. President Donald Trump thinks a poll is skewed. Um, not so fast. We take a look at the criticism and whether or not it’s warranted.

And, don’t forget to check out our series of free, short online courses. It’s called The Marist Poll Academy.

About Poll Hub

Poll Hub goes behind the science to explain how polling works, what polls really show, and what the numbers really mean. Poll Hub is produced by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, home of America’s leading independent college public opinion poll, The Marist Poll. Lee Miringoff (Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion), Barbara Carvalho (Director of the Marist Poll), and Jay DeDapper (Director of Innovation at the Marist Poll) dig deep to give you a look at the inner workings of polls and what they tell us about our world, our country, and ourselves.
