The results of the second poll will be released on Tuesday, August 4, one week ahead of Vermont’s primary election.

The polls are being conducted by Braun Research under the direction of Rich Clark, professor of political science at Castleton University and the former director of the Castleton Polling Institute.

VPR and Vermont PBS will publish the full results, methodology, and appendices at a joint website, which will be available via
