Oh, Those Dems!

In this weekâs episode of Poll Hub, we dive deep into brand new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll results. Topping the rundown: perceptions of the Democratic candidates. In terms of favorability, Elizabeth Warren runs circles around her Democratic challengers among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, but attitudes shift when looking at the broader electorate. We explain. And, the NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll shows consistent support for gun restrictions in the United States. We share where there is the most consensus as well as the most division and take on the topic of why Congress has yet to act. Then, scientifically speaking! We look at Americansâ perceptions of scientists, compliments of a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center (https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019/08/19/most-americans-have-positive-image-of-research-scientists-but-fewer-see-them-as-good-communicators/).
