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:
