Written Assignment #5
Find three different public opinion polls (from different sources) on the same current political issue (for example, immigration, war in Syria, tariffs, abortion, national debt, Social Security, prayer in schools, etc.).
Discuss the findings of these various polls. Are the results of the three polls similar or different? Why do you think that might be the case?
How might the sample, sample size, type of poll, time period in which the poll was conducted, or wording of the questions have affected the results? Are there any other elements that may have affected the results of the polls?
Be sure to include the actual polls (or links to the polls) with your response.
