Excellent Podcast by Gallup!

This is an amazing podcast! If you want to know what American are thinking, you need to listen to this show hosted by Frank Newport. Additionally, the sound and production is excellent.

Interesting but partisaned

Gallup (I thought) was supposed to be nonpartisan polling research. But it increasingly features experts who describe issues by citing causes and justifications only from the left. Not impartial enough content.

Interesting topics, and certainly not activist in tone, but also not a full picture.

Statement of results no interpretation or context

I've listened to 4 episodes so far. 3 have been purely a statement of results with almost no looking into the reasoning or the context or so forth like on "the Pollsters" podcast which I prefer. For example on the trump approval, the podcast just stated numbers. "The pollsters" dug deeper, with for example the theory and facts that trumps approval rating is actually very good, it's higher than all other major figures in gov and as I put it, we are just in an era of across the board low approval of politicians. That is a much more thought provoking podcast than this. Still they are quite neutral as they should be, unlike the clear bias of 538. which undermines their credibility and diminishes their ability to accurately interpret politician data.
