The United States election process and the impact of political polling
Political polls are a prevalent voting tactic for candidates running for election. Unfortunately, political polls tend to be unreliable at times; they yield inaccurate information and provide a poor indicator of public opinion. Polls inherently rely upon statistics, and for this reason, provide the illusion of numerical certainty. The accuracy of political polls is undermined when considering the deliberate manipulation of question order, interview bias, sample audiences, repetition and wording bias. However, polls remain ubiquitous in national publications.
With the media, as well as the majority of the voting population, taking the results of various political polls into account, do you feel as though the United States relies too heavily on the inaccurate data presented in modern political polls?
