With so many political polls coming out, the airwaves are filled with breathless stories covering the ups and downs of individual candidates. But how much do these polls mean, and what should we really be looking for? Data scientist Sam Wang will discuss how data can be mined creatively for insights into what's really happening this campaign season, the shape of the American electorate on Election Day, and more.

Please note: Josh Katz will not be in attendance.
