Polling and Polarization, with Frank Newport: Editor-in-Chief at Gallup


In his many years analyzing American opinions, Frank Newport, Editor-in-Chief at Gallup, has noticed a growing and sharper political divide in this country, even for a nation that was founded on partisanship.  We’ll talk about these trends, the demographic and cultural forces behind them, and why we still say we want compromise.


Dr. Frank Newport -  Editor-in-Chief at Gallup. He has a weekly radio show called “What Are We Thinking?” and is the featured analyst on “Attitude Check,” a weekly broadcast on public radio’s “Marketplace.”
