On the second day of the AAPOR Conference in Chicago, I had a chance to catch up with Jennifer Agiesta of the Washington Post who chaired a panel session on candidate preferences and election outcomes. The panel featured presentations on a number of topics that impact how public opinion measures elections, including third parties and whether or not having your name at the top of the ballot gives you a distinct advantage. I caught up with Jennifer after the panel to chat with her about the presentations and to find out what challenges she's anticipating as a media pollster heading into the 2010 elections.
