It seems as though the 2016 and 2018 election cycle was just yesterday, but the 2020 election cycle is just around the corner. With the presidential election in mind and the various polls predicting its outcome we must also keep in mind what the polls predicted last election and the actual results. Will 2020 be any different? Where are the political trends leading us? Join us for an evening discussion on political trends and observations from 2020 polling research!
