Insight & Analysis: The Supreme Court battle, WH2016, EU Ref & LAB’s dire polling numbers
Welcome to the third show which builds on the hugely successful PB/Polling Matters podcasts by running it jointly on TV and in audio.
This is a big venture for PB we are pleased with the reaction so far.
We always knew that 2016 would be a very full political year with the White House Race and the May London/Scottish/Welsh and local elections – the first real test of opinion since the General Election. But who could have foreseen how the battle for the White House would evolve with the latest move over the vacancy at the Supreme Court.
On this week’s podcast, Keiran Pedley is joined by White House Correspondent and U.S. political analyst Jon-Christopher Bua to discuss his reflections on the 2016 race, including the impact of the death of Justice Scalia and whether President George W Bush can inject life into his brother’s ailing campaign. Jon-Christopher also gives his reflections on the appeal of Trump and Sanders and what might happen in Nevada and South Carolina.
In the second part of the show Keiran and Leo look closer to home, assessing the state of the Westminster parties as the UK gears up for its own election season and asking whether the E.U. referendum polls really are tightening.
