Polling Matters - Ep. 85 May Brexit plans, immigration and Trump's inauguration
This week's podcast is split into two parts.
In part one, Keiran is joined in the studio by Adam Drummond, Head of Political Polling at Opinium. Keiran and Adam discuss all things data in the aftermath of Theresa May's big Brexit speech. They discuss the public's reaction to May's speech, attitudes to 'Hard' and 'Soft' Brexits (and why numbers are not always what they seem), immigration polling, May's approval ratings and polling on the NHS. Keiran also explains why he does not think Labour's polling 'floor' is as bad as others make out.
In part two, Keiran is joined on the phone by US political expert (and Polling Matters regular), Jon-Christopher Bua. Keiran and Jon-Christopher discuss Trump's inaguration, what his transition says about the type of president he will be and what happens next once he takes the oath of office.
