Fantastic. Essential listening for those interested in politics, social science, statistics and their intersection.

Essential

Since it started it's been a real insight to the 2016 elections and now the Trump days. Wether you are a fan of polling or not (but if you are it's a goldmine), the info it packs is almost essential (and as reliable as it gets) in trying to understand what is going on in the USA. I never miss an episode.
