The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 52) 01.15.2021
Today we’re going to look at healing, legacy, and how we all can do our part to lower the temperature. People are losing the art of conversation and the ability to listen. We’ve been thinking a lot about empathy and how that might be going down the drain on both sides of the aisle. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 01/15/21 – Let’s Talk About Healing Show Notes: So how can we begin the process of healing our divisions? Let’s check with what we really believe. How can we then go through a process of reconnecting? One of the things we see in our community (Utica, NY) is that most people think that our diversity is a good thing. This region has welcomed refugees from all over the world who now call Utica home. One thing is clear – it’s hard to hate someone that you truly see and know. It’s easy to de-humanize based on a caricature. . One thought – we need a nationwide network of small conversations in this country. It should be presidential but it should involve religious leaders, activists, civic leaders, business leaders, and be non-partisan. These conversations should launch a dialogue. The most important thing that could come from an initiative like this should be relationships and empathy. The Inauguration Let’s shift gears – we have an inauguration next week. If you have 5 minutes with Joe Biden to discuss policy – what would you say? Thanks for all of your comments and messages and for subscribing. Have a great week!

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 51) 01.08.2021
We hope everyone had a safe holiday season, and on our first episode back, we’re starting with our country at a very low point in its history. So today – let’s talk about what happened, what should happen and debate a bigger picture of what’s happening in the United States. When we started this podcast a year ago – we predicted that 2020 would be the year of protest. That has certainly proven true. At the end of the day there needs to be accountability across the board. What happened on Wednesday didn’t start with the 2020 election. Stay safe, stay tuned – and have a good week. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 01/08/21 – Should the President Go?

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 50) 12.18.2020
Today on the podcast we’ll be talking about some of the numbers that have come out of one of our recent polls on American’s feelings about the COVID19 vaccines. It’s the most comprehensive poll of it’s kind and we have found some significant differences in opinion. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 12/18/20 – The Vaccines Arrive SHOW NOTES: Vaccine Poll Results: We focused our poll on this new type of vaccine (mRNA) and our results have divided people into three camps – the Hopeful, the Hesitant and the Refusers. We get into the numbers: 34% feel the vaccines are safe 36% feel it could cause harm 30% are just not sure When we look at key demographics, older Americans are the most likely to feel hopeful. The under 40 age group are the most likely to feel worry about the vaccine. There is so much more interesting data in our report which you can read here: Mandates (16:30) We also asked the question about vaccine mandates and again, polarization is prevalent. Could this cause a great migration between states? Might we also start to see a geographic and cultural re-alignment of the country? Another scenario – if things play out according to plan, does the rollout of immunity bring Americans who are hesitant to take the vaccine into the the group who will take it after some period of time? You can view our full report on our website at https://johnzogbystrategies.com/the-main-st-k-st-intelligenseer/ and we’d love your thoughts on the data. We’ll be off until the new year, and we’re grateful you, our listeners as well as your thoughts on comments. Stay safe and we’ll see you in 2021

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 49) 12.11.2020
We’ve spent a lot time talking about how divided the country is and today on the podcast we’ll dig into tribalism and how that is affecting this division. But even more important we’re going to look at better ways to determine what unites us and how we might find common ground moving forward. We’ll also talk about how tribalism in our states and in Congress is affecting COVID relief talks and we’ll recap some of your comments from last week on how you might rate Trump’s presidency. Moving forward we’re looking at including some guests on the show. Let us know in the comments or via email who you might like us to speak with as we head into 20201. Have a great week everyone! John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 12/11/20 – Tearing us apart and putting us back together SHOW NOTES: 01:30 – Tearing Us Apart and Putting Us Back Together Again Let’s start with one of the factors that is tearing us apart – tribalism. Recently, Rush Limbaugh suggested that we are at a moment where Republicans may be ready to split. Is this a real concern? Do we have the ability to come together or will our tribal instincts continue to fracture us across many cultural lines? Remember, America was not born as an ethnicity or a culture – it was born as an idea. Around that, the founding fathers developed institutions to serve a growing national community. 10:00 – Re-thinking Tribes and Demographics So ingrained in our society are factors such as race, age, gender – but in the digital age this means less and less. Let’s talk about why. We need to re-think about how we segment people. Let’s look at categorizing people based on who define who they are. What drives decision making is less about age and race and more about their beliefs. What do these diverse groups have in common? How can we use those commonalities to bring our nation together? 19:35 – Divisions and COVID We have people who have lost their healthcare, unemployment and more – and Congress is haggling over a band-aid and the focus has been around the divisions rather than the commonalities. 23:30 – Your Comments and Guests We asked you how you might grade Trump’s presidency and who you think would be Time’s Person of the year. We received many interesting responses and we’ll talk about some of the common themes. We’re hoping to bring on some guests in 2021 – Who would you like to see on the show? Leave us a comment or send us an email.

It’s interesting to see how the ‘ranking’ of Presidents changes over the years and how they are perceived in history. As we talk about how Trump will be thought of, we’ll also debate the positions of some of the most well-known and revered Presidents. 17:35 – Let’s look at how the Trump phenomenon was preceded by the Tea Party movement. 20:15 – Who will be Time’s Person of the Year?

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 47) 11.27.2020
We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. On today’s episode we’re talking about The Great Reset and whether a worldwide Universal Basic Income could help to stem inequality and lift millions out of poverty. What might that look like? And how does that impact power and control around the world. We’ll also talk about the 4th Industrial Revolution and discussions at Davis around this major shift. Large questions around whether or not people will be forced to participate in this transformation or not remain. Finally – can billionaires actually be a driving force to help lessen inequality? To have a counter-movement you have to have a movement. As always we welcome your thoughts on all of these topics. Leave us a comment or send us and email and we hope you have a great week.

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 46) 11.20.2020
This week on the podcast it’s a lively discussion about national community. How do you heal a nation when there are two different worlds of information and narratives being presented to the American people that are at odds with each other? Do we still have a national community and is it essential? Or are we two nations drifting apart? We’ll talk about how both parties try to de-legitimize the other and the media’s role, and with new travel advisories from the CDC, will Americans trust science and experts as COVID19 infection rates spike yet again? John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 11/20/20 – How to we heal the nation? SHOW NOTES: 0:40 – Is it time for Trump to concede? It’s time for Trump to give it up before his legacy is simply cemented as the President who worked to undermine the democratic process in the United States. Many of the Republicans around Trump may finally be tiring of his strategy. 03:05 – Media and National Legitimacy What happens when both sides seek to de-legitimize the other and what are the long-term implications for our democracy? 14:50 – The Tyranny of the Minority One side has to accept that the other has won and the other stands down. Our country seems to be at an impasse where 5 million votes separates the candidates, with no evidence of massive voter fraud, and yet our country seems to still be at an impasse. What’s next is troubling. 20:00 – COVID19 and Travel Warnings The CDC is warning there should not be holiday travel with the latest infection rates showing 1 million new cases this week and the no end in sight. Will America trust science? The next several weeks will put that to the test and will determine the fate of thousands of Americans. Are their credible alternative voices that are not being heard? Is ‘science’ even a term that is agreed upon?

Whither or Wither? On today’s podcast let’s look at the future of American democracy – Biden is the President-Elect and most of the country, including Republicans are acknowledging it. The question now is how Biden will govern and whether or not there is a mandate. How can he navigate the opposition party as well as opposition within the Democratic Party that expects boldness? John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 11/13/20 – Wither or Whither? SHOW NOTES: 01:00 – Where does American Democracy Go? 03:00 – The Peaceful Transition of Power 10.20 – Does Biden have a mandate? 13:50 – The Imperial presidency and Boldness Vs.

It’s the Friday after Election Day which is turning into Election Week and beyond and while we don’t know the official results of the race, it’s clear the country is still very divided, but that a Biden Presidency is looking more and more likely. We’re in the polling business, and today we’ll take a look at not just the state of the race but the state of the polling industry. What did pollsters, get right, wrong, and how does it need to adjust from here. It’s evident that most national polls didn’t get it right (again). Finally Let’s look toward the future. What might we see in a Biden Presidency in this time of political tribalism. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 11/06/20 – The Race, The Polls & The Future SHOW NOTES: 00:50 – Election Recap 05:10 – The State of Polling 19:15 – What’s Going to Happen/Political Tribalism Thanks for tuning in, and for your great questions at this past Monday’s Virtual Town Hall.

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 43) 10.30.2020
What’s Going On and What Does It Mean? On today’s podcast we’re bringing you our analysis of the latest polls and what they mean. Even though most polls show Biden leading Trump, remember 4 years ago, Clinton had an even greater advantage in many polls though she was moving down in the polls. The biggest difference was that in many battleground states, it was clear that Clinton was in a downward spiral. We’re not seeing a clear trend here. Some days in many battleground states things are moving back and forth between the two candidates. Remember, over 80 million people have voted already. One thing is clear, is that there is the potential for a blue wave. So who is going to win? It’s unclear. We’ll give you our (differing) thoughts. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 10/30/20 -What’s Going On and What Does It Mean? Show Notes: 01:00 – The Latest Polls and What They Mean 13:10 – Social Desirability Bias Are there enough Trump voters who are not vocal about their support (or Democrats who will vote Trump) to sway the election? We’ll give you some of our thoughts. 19:00 – Our Latest Forbes Poll 21:00 – Hip Hop Endorsements Several prominent Hip Hop Artists have endorsed Trump’s Platinum Plan or Trump himself. How might this affect black voters? Other Notes: We’ve added Video to our podcast! You can watch us as well as listen by subscribing to our YouTube channel or viewing this week’s episode here.

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 29) 07.24.2020
Today on the show we’ll give the latest updates on national polling in the race for the White House and how Trump appears be doing anything he can to improve his chances of re-election. But we’ll spend the remainder of today’s show discussing the 4th Industrial Revolution. It’s something that promises to reinvent and change most aspects of our lives, careers, and possibly our bodies. This relationship with technology and machines will have a profound effect on us all and we’ll share some interesting data about who is embracing this change and who fear it. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 07/24/20 – The 4th Industrial Revolution SHOW NOTES 01:30 – Election Update We’ll start with a quick election update and once again we’re seeing the COVID19 pandemic affect the country in major ways including the most recent cancelling of the in-person parts of the Republican convention. In the most recent national polling Trump trails Biden by as few as 7 points to as much as 15 points nationwide and is behind in the key battleground states. If current trends continue, Biden looks to be expanding the map of competitive states. So if the election were held today Trump would be in serious trouble. This week we’re seeing Trump do whatever he thinks he can do to try to make up ground as we see him switching his rhetoric regarding the impact COVID19 is having on the country. People seem to be looking for a leader that can show stability and consistency, which is not Trump’s strong suit. He’s now dependent in large part on forces beyond his control. 10:08 – The 4th Industrial Revolution The speed of this 4th Industrial Revolution is what makes this period of time unique. We’re still catching up with the impacts of the 2nd and 3rd revolutions and we’re truly unprepared for the arrival of AI, biotech and robotics at scale. Our work and relationship with machines are being transformed and this is the topic of our latest Main St./K St. IntellingenSEER report. Let’s look at what we’re seeing in the data. Watch the video we reference in the podcast from the World Economic Forum here – The 4th Industrial Revolution

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 28) 07.17.2020
On today’s episode we’re talking about the war for the undecideds in the upcoming election and if our country wants to fight a civil war over the Civil War. Right now most polls are showing Biden way up in the polls, but could the same story play out that we saw in 2016? Also – in our latest IntelligenSEER report we talk about the status of the federal union and the various divisions we’re seeing in the country. Much of the report is grounded in history and we’ll look at whether we’re prepared to fight a civil war over the Civil War. Can we overcome this current wave of disunity? John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 07/17/20 – A Civil War Over The Civil War? SHOW NOTES: 01:30 – Election Updates Trump continues to have bad weeks and seems to be losing support among his own base. What are we seeing? In our latest poll we see the race tightening up to a 7 point lead but most importantly we see Trump and Biden tied when it comes to voters over the age of 65. This is a big swing compared to 2016 where Trump dominated. This tells us there are large numbers of people that are genuinely unsure about who they will support in the election. So you’ll see some of the numbers continue to see-saw between now and Election Day. Biden currently only has 77% support among African Americans but we anticipate this will increase if he nominates a woman of color as his running-mate. 16:00 – Are we going to fight another Civil War over the Civil War? We’ll dig into the culture wars and why 2020 is a pivotal year for the country.

The election is officially less than 4 months away and we have some of the latest numbers and information about where the candidates stand. This week we’ll also dive into some surprising and possibly shocking data as it relates to what we’re calling History Wars in our next Main St./K St. IntelligenSEER Report. In this new report we asked voters about their perception of American history, the Black Lives Matter movement, statues of the confederacy and much more. Their responses show a strong correlation that is playing out in the streets and the voting booth. As always, thanks for listening and subscribing. You can read our Main St./K St. IntelligenSEER Report and we welcome all your thoughtful comments and feedback. Have a great week. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 07/10/20 – History Wars SHOW NOTES: 01:00 Election Update: We still have Biden leading by 7 points with 9% still of voters still undecided, so the race has tightened a bit over the last month. He’s has the support of 90% of Democrats and Trump has support of 89% of Republicans- so the race still comes down to independents. And so we’ll see hundreds of millions of dollars to either suppress these voters or to try to sway them. We’ll get into why Biden’s lead seems to have shrunk recently and why we’re seeing as much as 14% of black voters support Trump. 15:14 History Wars In some of our latest polling we look at different views of American history (multiculturalist vs Anglo-Saxon), Black Lives Matter and Confederate Statues. The data will surprise you. 22:23 Do Americans think we are headed for Civil War? A surprising amount of those surveyed think we may be. 26:00 Has the time come for a new Constitutional Convention? 28:10 Which level of government do you trust the most? Local, State, National or None?

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 26) 07.03.2020
On today’s episode it’s all about the current election. The latest polls have Biden leading in all battleground states and nationally by an average of 9%. What can change between now and Election Day? A lot, but it all depends on who gets the credit and who gets the blame… We’ll talk about the importance of public perception vs reality and how that can make a difference in upcoming elections. Finally – we’ll touch on a story that’s both old and new with the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell. How might the Epstein case factor into the national election? We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day weekend. Thanks as always for listening, subscribing and for your comments. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 07/03/20 – Who Gets the Blame? Show Notes: Election Updates: Trump job approval ratings are very low for any incumbent facing re-election. National polls have Biden up by an average of 9 points and is leading in all battleground states. Trump is also losing ground with voters over 65, white women and white Catholics. 04:16 What can Trump do? It all comes down to gamble on his bid to re-open the economy and the public perception on economic recovery. Most important, who does the public blame for the handling of the economy and the pandemic. 16:46 The Little Black Book This week Ghislaine Maxwell, close confidant of Jeffrey Epstein was arrested. While this story is new, it has legs and has the potential to affect elections around the country depending on what additional names become entangled in this case. Might we be in for an October surprise?

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 25) 06.26.2020
On today’s podcast – can Trump’s numbers recover? Major polling around the country including in several battleground states has him trailing Biden in a big way. What might happen between now and November? We’ll continue our discussion around the top contenders in the race to be Biden’s running-mate. Finally, based on feedback from one of our listeners, let’s talk about critical thinking and the rise of the anti-expert. Don’t forget to check out our free Main St./K St. IntelligenSEER report on our website – the first two issues are now available and provide insight into major issues that are already shaping the future of the country. Have a great week! John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 06/26/20 – Can Trump Recover? SHOW NOTES 01:45 – Election Updates We’ll start with the presidential race and the latest polls. The major polls have caught up with our own data and are showing Biden’s lead widening, and we can see that at this moment Trump is on the ropes. With that said, we still believe that this is a competitive race. The Republicans are trying to set a narrative to Joe Biden that he’s too old and not up to the job – will it work? 06:27 – Let The Debates Begin What might the debates between Trump and Biden look like? 12:45 – The latest on the Biden VP Potential Picks At this point we believe that Biden is very likely to pick an African American woman. We’ll break down the advantages that each of the top candidates under consideration has. 20:14 – Critical Thinking and the age of the anti-expert. How does crowd-sourced media, podcasting and amateur media affect what the public perceives as truth. Does consensus mean true? 28:30 – What’s coming up in the next IntelligenSEER report? In our next report we’ll look at the historical backdrop of the debate around centralization vs. decentralization. We’ll also show how this fits into the larger discussion around trust and the public’s view of whether or not we will have free and fair elections in the future.

Welcome to Episode 24 and what a week it’s been. Today on the podcast we’ll have the latest on the presidential contest with some brand new national polling data as well as insights from our poll of 18-29 year olds. Nationally, Biden is leading Trump by 13% and in many battleground states. And in our own poll of 18-29 year olds, though Biden leads Trump we see that there is still large percentage of respondents who could change their mind between now and the election. We’ll also share our thoughts on a very interesting book by author Kirkpatrick Sale – The Collapse of 2020. In it he outlines 3 areas of collapse (political, ecological, and economic) and we’ll debate the merits of each. Lastly, be sure to download the latest Main St./K St. IntelligenSEER report. The report is full of insights from our polling data that reveal clues as to where our country is headed. The first two issues are available now. As always, we love you comments thoughts.

Nationally Biden is leading by approx 8-9% and in a number of battleground states. 07:44 – Young People Agree to Disagree We’ll talk about some very interesting results of our latest poll of 18-29 year olds where we find areas of both agreement, and disagreement on topics such as systemic racism, police brutality, and the Confederate Flag. 17:45 – The Collapse of 2020 (book) We both have a brief review and commentary on “The Collapse of 2020” a book by author Kirkpatrick Sale. The author outlines 3 areas of collapse – Ecological, Political and Economic. It’s a very quick read with some important thoughts.

We end the week with 42 million (approximately 20%) of Americans unemployed and the remarkable events of the past several days. The country continues to react to the murder of George Floyd and others, and protests against police brutality and institutional racism grow across the country. On today’s podcast, we’ll begin with politics and the President’s disgraceful, disturbing and dangerous behavior, and how it is beginning to hurt him with a key demographic of voters. As we look at the way the media has been covering recent events, we’ll discuss to what extent is the media coverage journalism or activism? Finally, will the largest part of this developing story continue to primarily focus on race or police brutality in general? A reminder – if you want to see what Americans are telling us about where we’re heading into the future, we’ve released the first of our new bi-weekly reports – The IntelligenSEER, in partnership with EMI Research Solutions. You’ll not only get the numbers but will also get our analysis of what they mean. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 06/05/20 – Disgraceful Disturbing and Dangerous SHOW NOTES: 01:00 As noted in the weekly report card for the Washington Examiner, this week, the President’s behavior is disgraceful, disturbing, and dangerous. And for the first time, it may be hurting his poll numbers. As of today, Biden is leading by double digits in most polls and Trump is losing ground with a key demographic – senior citizens. 09:43 – The media’s coverage: activism or journalism? 15:00 – Racism and Police Brutality. What are the long term implications of this developing movement and what’s at the core? 17:27 – The IntelligenSEER, our bi-weekly report on the future of America.

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 21) 05.29.2020
Today we’re providing a quick update on the latest in the Presidential race – including some of the hypothetical matchups of candidates other than Biden that we have tested. But we spend the bulk of our episode previewing our first report in what we’re calling the Main St./K St. Intelligenseer which will help us to understand what the future of our country will look like. We’ll post the full report on our website and will be offering additional insights and reports moving forward as a subscription. In our preview we’ll dig into insights surrounding the use of biometric tracking information, AI & 5G, and whether or not we trust science. That’s just to name a few. Visit JohnZogbyStrategies.com starting next week to read the first report completely free. Thanks again for listening, your comments, and subscribing. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 05/29/20 – The Main St./K St. Intelligenseer SHOW NOTES: 3:19 – Biden is leading Trump at this point 53% to 40% – the largest margin so far. We’ll get into the demographics that are helping Biden at this point in the race. But there are some lurking shadows… 6:05 – We’ll give you some of the latest insights on the public’s feelings towards important issues that will affect our future in a big way, including biometric ID tracking, 5G, AI and Robotics. 18:20 – Will 5G, AI and Robotics benefit humanity or cause unforeseen challenges and negative effects that will outweigh any benefits? How will these technologies cause long term disruption to people around the world? 28:26 – Trusting Science – Should we trust existing institutions or are institutions that employ scientists have their own agenda, so views outside the mainstream should be considered.

The Zogby Report: Real and Unscripted (Episode 20) 05.22.2020
On today’s episode let’s debate. We look at how different countries have reacted to the pandemic and the effectiveness of their approaches as well as what the long term cultural and economic impacts will be. Is there strong consensus on the way forward and what role and responsibility does the media have to present various ideas, especially unpopular ones? We’ll also shift focus to the 2020 campaign and where Trump stands in terms of his re-election chances. We’ll look how important the idea of trust is, and make some predictions on who is leading the race for VP. Next week we’ll get into the details of our latest poll around predicting the future, so don’t miss it. Thanks again for listening, commenting, sharing and subscribing! Have a safe Memorial Weekend. John Zogby Strategies · The Zogby Report | 05/22/20 – A Pandemic Debate SHOW NOTES: 2:00 – COVID19 Responsiveness We’re having a generational debate on the the effectiveness of lockdown measures across the country and across the world. Is there only one way to address a pandemic such as this? What can we learn from how varying nations including S. Korea and Sweden have approached containment and re-opening? Is there really strong consensus on the way forward and what role and responsibility does the media have to present various ideas, especially unpopular ones? 18:45 – Decision 2020 Update As of today, on average, Biden leads Trump by 5 1/2% points in major national polls but individual polls show Biden leading by 11% or 1% depending on who is polling – so be sure to read into the data to see WHO is being polled. Among those who disapprove of Trump – they STRONGLY disapprove – well over 50%. The fact remains that a handful of battleground states will most likely decide the election and Trump could conceivably win the electoral college while losing the popular vote by a margin of 5%. 25:00 – Attacking Obama Do the continuous attacks by Trump on Barack Obama matter? Or is this a tactic to continue to try to keep his base motivated? 27:20 – VP Buzz We’ll also make some predictions on the race for the VP nomination and the implications that various choices have for the election and for Congress.
