An unconventional new poll just took a closer look at that question—and the results are surprising. (They're also instructive for operatives running competitive midterm campaigns right now.) In this TAPPED call, I talk with one of the architects of the survey, Cornell Professor Douglas Kriner. Doug is an award-winning author and the Clinton Rossiter Professor in American Institutions at Cornell. Together with Rep. Steve Israel, chair of Cornell's Institute of Politics and Global Affairs, teamed up with political polling veteran Anna Greenberg, Ph.D., to design this unique survey. They released the results during Cornell's recent State of Democracy Summit on May 24, 2022.
