Poli Sci faculty member Ron Schmidt interviewed by Mal Leary on Maine Public

USM Professor Ron Schmidt

USM Professor of Political Science Ron Schmidt was interviewed for a Maine Public story in which he describes the effects of ranked-choice voting on election polling.

Schmidt said that polls provide a “snapshot” of voter opinion.

“These snapshots, given the newness of ranked-choice voting and the issues with primaries anyway, are probably pretty fuzzy.”
