Joe spoke about to CTK students about his upbringing, his educational background and explained about the many challenges faced in Political polling. The feedback from students was that Joe had given them an insight into politics and voting that they had been unaware of before and all found his talk highly engaging. Joe himself said that “some of the questions I was asked were among the most astute I have had.”
