As we get closer to Election Day almost every new day brings with it a new poll. Some polls have President Obama in the lead, some give the edge to Mitt Romney, and others proclaim the race to be a dead heat. With so many varying results, how do we know which polls give an accurate snap shot of public opinion? On today’s Radio Times we’ll examine the business of polling and try to understand what factors contribute to the varying outcomes. Our guests for this discussion are ALAN ABRAMOWITZ, the Alben W. Barkley Professor of Political Science at Emory University and MARK BLUMENTHAL, senior polling editor of the Huffington Post.
