British Referendum Polls Are A Mess

This week’s elections podcast jumps across the pond to discuss the British referendum on whether to leave the European Union. Tom Clark, chair of the Guardian’s editorial board (and newly appointed editor of Prospect, a London-based magazine), shares the latest polls and helps explain why those numbers can be all over the place in the U.K. Stateside, the podcast politics crew also tracks Donald Trump’s recent tumble in national polls.

P.S. The podcast will be on the road later this week! We’ll be in San Francisco on Thursday and Los Angeles on Saturday. More information is here.
