Yost will discuss common beliefs and misperceptions about the performance of public polls during the 2016 election in order to understand what public polls are telling us about the 2018 mid-terms.  

This talk was proposed by Candace Roper and is sponosred by the Common Hour Committee.

Common Hour enables the entire Franklin & Marshall College community to gather for culturally and academically enriching events at midday each Thursday during the academic year. This opportunity to engage in a campus-wide dialogue originates with Common Hour and then extends beyond the confines of 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. into classrooms, house commons, dining halls and beyond.
