Should we trust election polls in 2020? A chat with polling expert Jason Boxt

Today’s UnPresidented podcast is all about polls. Can we trust them, should we trust them, what actually happened in 2016, what do the polls tell us about the upcoming November election (including the fact that Biden is doing remarkably well with traditional GOP voters, and that Biden is winning in most swing states), and might the polls (with the help of mail-in ballots) put Trump in a position to claim an election night victory even if he lost.

We also discuss the bombshell Atlantic story about Trump calling the troops suckers and losers (and what the polls tell us about Trump’s military support), Trump’s rush to approve a vaccine, and all those MAGA boats that sank this weekend (sad!).
