The NS Podcast #183: Trump

The New Statesman podcast.

By New Statesman

*/

After a long night, Helen and Stephen reflect on the result of America’s 2016 election: how were the polls so wrong? Would Bernie have done better? And what might be the most concerning consequence of all?

Stephen asks who has had a bad election. Helen worries that Trump’s victory could have been even bigger if he’d been more competent. And you ask us: is the profileration of political polling a bad thing? (Helen’s answer involves mammoths and suger)

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush).
