Reunion Episode

I was excited to see the Pollsters pop up in my feed again and loved the reunion episode. I started listening sometime before the 2016 election and found the podcast to be a nice contrast to the partisanship of the last four years. Best of luck to the hosts going forward!

Civil, entertaining, informative

So nice to hear Margie and KSA back on the pod in the home stretch of 2020!
