The Interview
 Dr. Andy Smith is the Director of the UNH Survey Center.
"Dr. Smith is also a Associate Research Professor in the UNH Department of Political Science. His research has focused on survey methodology, elections, and public policy . The Survey Center is nationally known for its election polling. It has consistently conducted the most accurate polling in New Hampshire elections. In recent years, the Survey Center has conducted polls for CNN, Fox News, WCVB in Boston, WMUR in Manchester, KYW in Philadelphia, USA Today, the Boston Globe, and the Philadelphia Inquirer."


Dr. Steffen Schmidt, Iowa State University's "Dr. Politics" "and his popular call-in show have kept listeners tuned to WOI Radio for nearly 20 years, but 2004 saw Iowa State professor of political science, Steffen Schmidt go from the doctor of politics to the dean. While Schmidt has for many years been one of the most quotable political science experts in the country, sharing his insights with such media outlets as CNN, the BBC, and the New York Times, the high media profile of the 2004 democratic race turned him into a bona fide superstar. Always willing to offer an astute and sharp-witted observation on the political process in one of his four fluent languages, the Colombia native brought an unprecedented level of exposure to Iowa State during the 2004 Iowa Caucuses. Schmidt's visage graced the ABC Jumbotron in New York's Times Square; he conducted interviews with all three U.S. Spanish language networks; he was a guest on CNN's "Crossfire;" he was quoted in countless national newspapers, such as the Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and the Christian Science Monitor; and when Schmidt asked Marjan Moolenaar of the Netherlands National Television exactly why she wanted to talk to him she replied, "You are the most famous political scientist, and you are quoted by all the media on U.S. presidential elections and Iowa Caucuses."
