    Analyzing results from new poll of Georgia voters

    Analyzing results from new poll of Georgia voters

    We are six weeks from Election Day and the AJC shared results from a new poll of Georgia voters. The poll is intended to provide a snapshot of the state of the presidential and U.S. Senate elections, not a prediction of who will win, and it was conducted Sept. 11-20 by the University of Georgia’s School of Public and International Affairs. Host Greg Bluestein and AJC Washington correspondent Tia Mitchell discuss the results of the survey of 1,150 likely voters, the impact of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and President Trump’s expected visit.

    The 2020 Census

    The 2020 Census

    The census counts every person living in the United States and its territories once every 10 years, and the government uses that data in all sorts of important ways - from deciding how to distribute resources to redrawing political boundaries. 
    A recent federal report showed Georgia ranks second to last among the 50 states with its response rate, lagging behind only Alabama. 
    Joining us on this episode of Politically Georgia is Rebecca DeHart, CEO of Fair Count, an organization working to “ensure Georgians & communities across the country get a Fair Count in the 2020 Census.”

Meh

Purports to be a “news” podcast, but heavily tilted to a left wing perspective. Host is in love with Stacey Abrams.
