Pod Squad Talks Politics and the 2014 General Election

Colin Moore and Neal Milner join this week's podcast to talk about poll numbers, negative ads and whether Hawaii is the bluest of blue states.

If you’re into politics, then this week’s podcast is a good one. Political scientists Colin Moore and Neal Milner sat down with the Pod Squad’s Chad Blair to share insights and even a few laughs in a discussion about Hawaii and the statewide political contests.

Poll numbers were pored over. The question of why would anyone want to run for Congress was answered. Do negative or attack ads really work? Why is Hawaii so special that there’s a belief that those ads don’t work here? Where’s Neil Abercrombie? Is Hawaii truly a blue state? They even offered free (and pretty smart) campaign advice.
