Defying Predictions:

How Did We Get It So Wrong?


Speaker:

Krista Jenkins

Professor of Political Science, Fairleigh Dickinson University 

Executive Director, PublicMind

 

The presidential election brought into sharp focus the public's unease with the accuracy of polls. From underestimating sizable differences, to overstating levels of support, the role of public opinion polls in our democracy today goes far beyond simply predicting the outcome of a race. 

 

Join us as Krista Jenkins, professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and the Executive Director of PublicMind, FDU's Research Center, discusses the role of public opinion polls and its challenges which this election certainly served to highlight. Ms. Jenkins will also focus on the extent to which unease over polling accuracy is warranted, as well as the art and science of conducting and reporting on complicated and many times confusing polling data. Krista Jenkins is a frequent broadcast and print commentator on politics in New Jersey, and author of numerous articles and books on Politics and Gender, Politics and Youth and the American Political Behavior.

Hate Trumps Love

September 19, 2017

This letter is in response to Karen Egert's letter, "President Trump has abandoned the country," dated September 11, 2017. 

I find it interesting that Karen only saw the violence from the 'alt-right,' over the course of one day, but did not see, or refuses to acknowledge all the violence from the alt-left' over the past several years - from the occupy ...

U.S. Air Traffic Control Isn’t Working; Here's How to Fix it

September 13, 2017

For over 30 years the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tried – and failed –to modernize America’s woefully dysfunctional air traffic control system (ATC). It is time to get ATC out from under the thumbs of federal bureaucrats and partisan politicians, and create a completely new structure that will get U.S. air traffic moving.

American ATC is stuck in the 1950s.

Give Me Some Credit

I used to think I was special.  

 

But it turns out I am not.  I am just one measly name in 143 million.  

 

You see, that’s the number of lucky Americans who had their personal data purloined in a massive data breach at Equifax, the credit reporting agency.  At least I am not alone.

 

I checked the special Equifax website the other day ...
