Discussion groups | Political Campaigns, Top to Bottom: Data, Door Knocking and the 2018 Midterms

October 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Week five: Polling & Data: How do we Track and Predict the Outcome of Elections?

Polling is always one of the focal points for the public’s attention leading up to elections. In 2016, very few pollsters forecasted the Trump win accurately. Some blame this on the Clinton campaign’s reliance on analytics and modeling, rather than polling and door-to-door experience. Can polling and data work together in the future?

About Fall 2018 discussion groups: Technology has transformed every aspect of the modern political campaign, from polling to messaging to fundraising and beyond. Kelly Dietrich, founder of the National Democratic Training Committee (NDTC) and KU alumnus, leads a discussion group series on the midterm elections and their intersection with tech and data. Dietrich and his guests will glean real-world examples from the midterms as they happen, offering audience members an unparalleled look at the inner workings of today’s campaigns.
