EP 444 Political Polling: Is it Reliable or Necessary?

Presidential races are covered more like a horse race than a contest of ideas.  What impact does that have both on crowding out more important news about the candidates, like positions on issues, and on how we feel about the race depending on how our preferred candidate is doing?  Then there’s the growing concern that … Continue reading EP 444 Political Polling: Is it Reliable or Necessary?

EP 443 The U.S. Senate Where Legislation Goes to Die
