This Wednesday, we will be launching “The Topline”, a bi-weekly round-up of polling, politics and data. Every week we’ll go in depth on one or two issues and then provide some links to the best of the web.Sometimes serious, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, The Topline will keep you in the know on polling developments in Massachusetts and beyond.

This week, we will go in-depth on Boston Olympics polling to date, round up other polling news including a set of way-too-early 2016 polls, and finish off with statistical proof that the Patriots are the greatest thing since sliced lobster roll buns.

We will also post The Topline here, but why wait? Sign up to receive it via email in the box on the right of this page.
