In this week's episode of the PB/Polling Matters podcast Keiran, Leo and Rob look at the latest US election polling with one week left of the campaign to go.
After a week off, Keiran is joined by Asa Bennett of the Telegraph and Leo Barasi to discuss Theresa May's growing in-tray with a specific focus on the decision to expand Heathrow airport and the resulting by-election in Richmond. Also discussed is whether the Labour Party vote has a 'floor', UKIP's leadership election and what prospects the polls say a 'STOP BREXIT' party might have in a General Election.
On this week's PB/Polling Matters show Keiran is joined by US elections experts Mark Gettleson from Portobello Communications and hosts of the LSE US podcast 'The Ballpark' Denise Baron and Chris Gilson.

Polling Matters - Ep. 76 Great (Br)expectations, why the Tories don’t want a snap election and the Clinton ’surge’
On this week's show Keiran is joined by Rob Vance and Matt Singh to discuss this week's Conservative Party conference. We look at what the public expect from Brexit, what polling really tells us about the immigration vs the single market debate, why the Tories might not want a snap election after all and just how much trouble Trump's campaign is in as the race for the White House enters the final stages.
On this week's PB/Polling Matters show the team react to Monday's debate between Trump and Clinton and look at what happens next for the Labour Party after Corbyn's victory last weekend.
On this week's show Keiran is joined by regular guests Leo Barasi and Matthew Shaddick from Ladbrokes to discuss the US presidential election and Lib Dem conference.
Polling Matters - Ep. 73 US SPECIAL: Clinton’s health, Ohio, Debates, Mr Brexit & Trump’s problem with women
On this week’s episode of the PB/Polling Matters podcast we focus on the US presidential race. Keiran is joined by Steven Shepard, chief polling analyst at Politico in the U.S. and Federica Cocco, statistical journalist at the Financial Times in the UK.
The show is split into two conversations, the first between Keiran and Steven and the second between Keiran and Federica.
Keiran and Steven discuss the impact of Clinton’s healthcare issues on the race and Trump’s path to the presidency. Steven shares the latest US polling news and explains what the Electoral College would look like if each candidate won the states where they lead in the most recent poll. The result might surprise you. Steven also explains what is going on in Ohio and the potential impact of the coming presidential debates.
Keiran and Federica look at parallels between Brexit and Trump’s support and Federica gives a detailed analysis of Trump’s position among American female voters (including an interesting stat about which group is most likely to turnout at presidential elections). Keiran raises Clinton’s trust issues and whether Trump’s tone has changed. Finally, Keiran and Federica look at voter expectations about who will win the first presidential debate and why this might be a problem for Clinton. The show finishes on the debates and a great Blackadder quote from Federica.
