Polls: The Most Inexact Of Sciences

LE 172 Poll graphic

“Caught between a cynical Clinton machine and a shape-changing reality television show, US politics has featured its latest twist in the saga of surges and poll ratings. Now, we are being told that Donald Trump does have a chance against Hillary Clinton, spluttering ahead in some of the figures.” The words of Dr. Binoy Kampmark in a cogent piece he wrote for CounterPunch, titled Trump and the Polls of Loathing. The Melbourne-based lecturer joins the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk about polls, what they mean and can they mislead as the race for the Whitehouse looms ahead. Binoy, a returning guest to the program, offers thoughtful analysis of the current state of American politics and the Presidential hopefuls. His subtle wit and clever diagnosis makes for informative and entertaining listening.

Dr. Binoy Kampmark is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, at RMIT University, Melbourne
