Midmorning covers polls and cash

Posted at 8:56 AM on September 19, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

MPR's Midmorning discusses political polls and money today, albeit not in the same show. You can send a question to the show online from the mpr.org homepage or the Midmorning program page.

At 9:06 a.m. CT catch the people behind the polls. People like one of the guests, Charles Franklin. Franklin is one of the developers of Pollster.com (Minnesota, we're a toss up!) but also has the chops, as he's a professor of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Program description:

The latest polls show John McCain's post-convention bounce losing steam, while Barack Obama's campaign seems to be benefiting from increased concern over the economy. Midmorning takes a closer look at how political polls are conducted, and whether they can be trusted.

Following that show, at 10:06 a.m. CT author and finance consultant Ruth Hayden drops in to talk about how to protect your money in turbulent times. Timely. Tune in for details:

More investment banks and other huge financial institutions continue to live on the edge of bankruptcy. Economists predict the loss of trillions of dollars in financial wealth disappearing worldwide. But does that mean you should take your money out of money markets and mutual funds? Personal financial consultant Ruth Hayden talks about what it takes to save during turbulent times.
