In this episode, recorded from the roof of the KoPoint studio in downtown Manhattan, co-hosts Dan Patterson and Marc Lizoain can't contain their excitement about the upcoming presidential debates, the rebranding of Mr. Romney, and Mr. Obama's recent gaffes.
Is Obama winning? Does Romney still have a chance? Why did our audio get cut off in the last thirty seconds of the episode? How can we even answer these questions? With the help of opinion polls! And that's why Dan and Marc spend the bulk of the show talking about polls, how they work, what they mean, and whether you should trust them. Election Day is six weeks away...
