Episode 118 of 280 episodes

Polls are not always accurate and in the US they are more regular and more detailed than everywhere else. But can polling actually shape a campaign, rather than merely reflect it? In this special edition of ‘The Foreign Desk’ from New York we look at the upcoming US elections and ask why polling is important. Featuring Jason Husser from the Elon University Poll; Dr Frank Newport, editor in chief of The Gallup Poll; and Azi Paybarah from Politico New York.
