Inside Politics with Bill Schneider and Joel Benenson

Each month, revered political analyst and longtime CNN contributor, Bill Schneider hosts a private press-only briefing to provide insight into the politicians, polls, and issues that are shaping our political landscape.

This month Bill’s special guest was Joel Benenson, founder of the Benenson Strategy Group and President Obama’s "Pollster General". Mr. Benenson joined us the morning after President Obama’s State of the Union speech to take a look ahead at the President’s agenda for 2014. Having been the President’s chief pollster and senior strategist since the 2008 campaign, his opinion was more than conjecture.
