On Wednesday, the best known polling organization in the world made a big change. Gallup announced that it would no longer be doing a daily presidential approval tracking poll.
“Beginning in 2018, Gallup will start updating presidential job approval on a weekly basis, rather than on a daily basis,” wrote Gallup chief Frank Newport by way of explanation.
I reached out to CNN’s own polling guru, Jennifer Agiesta, for some more context about why Gallup made the decision they did. I also asked a few broader questions about the state of public opinion polling following the 2016 election. CONT.
