GenNext: A New Marist Poll Project

Episode Summary

Introducing...GenNext! First, we talk with our two student researchers who helped us launch this new project designed to find out what young Americans are thinking. Then we discuss what comes next for GenNext. How is this poll that puts young Americans in charge of asking other young Americans questions going to change youth polling? Finally, have you ever rescued a stray? Our fun fact is for animal lovers.

Episode Notes

GenNext is a brand-new project from the Marist Poll in which young Americans ask young Americans about topics they care about. This entirely new type of youth survey launches with the work of two Marist students who wanted to understand how their peers are thinking about abortion and charitable giving compared with older generations.

Neel Viswanathan and Krystyna Lubrano join to talk about the experience of learning how to design and conduct a statistically valid survey AND what they thought of their results.

Then, we look ahead to what we're planning for GenNext -- especially since this generation of young Americans is the largest in US history and is already making themselves heard.

Finally, we celebrate National Rescue Dog Day through our fun fact. And, with a panel full of animal lovers, you know how this is going to go!
