The Second Reading Podcast: A chat with Mark Jones about the THPF/Baker Institute Poll and the 2020 Election in Texas (August 18, 2020)

Jim Henson and Josh Blank talk to Mark Jones of Rice University about the just-released Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation / Baker Institute poll, which survey Texans about the 2020 election with special attention to Texas Hispanics (i.e. an over-sample).  

To review the results of the THPF/Baker Institute poll, see the pdf report issued this morning. Professor Jones promises more to come!

A note about the Second Reading podcast. The podcast has been produced intermittently by the Texas Politics Project, with production support from UT's Liberal Arts Development Studio, since 2016, primarily as an instructional component for a course in Texas government and politics offered by the government department at UT Austin during summer semesters. These shows were generally hosted by Jim Henson, who designed the UT course, and usually featured Josh Blank, with intermittent in-studio guests. The podcasts have been publicly available via major podcast channels, but haven't been marketed to the public. The podcast is again part of the instructional design of GOV 312L: Politics and Government in Contemporary Texas during the Summer 2020 semester. The plan is to transistion from probably the longest soft-launch in the short but rich history of podcasting to a weekly public podcast in late summer/early fall of 2020.
