Latest Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service Battleground Poll to be Released Tuesday Ahead of the Democrat Primary Debate at Otterbein University 

Pollsters Ed Goeas and Celinda Lake to Discuss Results in Media Briefing at Debate Site

What:

Ahead of the Democratic primary debate at Otterbein University, join us for an in-depth conversation about the results from the latest Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service Battleground Poll, a national bipartisan survey of registered voters in the United States measuring voter sentiment and opinion on key political issues of the day.

Pollsters Ed Goeas and Celinda Lake will release the poll results and lead a briefing for journalists on Tuesday, October 15, at the debate site. They will be joined by Mo Elleithee, Executive Director of the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, which became the home of the Battleground Poll earlier this year.

A reliable bellwether of national voter opinion for nearly thirty years, the Battleground Poll tracks traditional polling questions related to U.S. electoral politics and voter attitudes on various issues of the day. Besides tracking more traditional political issues, the October Battleground Poll will also examine how voters feel about the impeachment of President Trump.

A second installment -- the Civility Poll -- will be released the following week in Washington, D.C., and will look at voter attitudes towards the state of civility in our national political conversation. The Battleground Poll began tracking the issue of civility in April.

Who:

Republican pollster Ed Goeas of The Tarrance Group,

Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners, and

Mo Elleithee, Executive Director of the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service

When:

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 2:00 PM ET
