1)Visit the Polling Report website: www.pollingreport.com (Links to an external site.)
2)Spend a little time clicking on the different topics – those that you find interesting – look at the dates, questions, answers and answer patterns (%s) and other information (N, Margin of error!)…
3)After you have looked at many questions, choose one question (& its answers) to use for this discussion. (Ensure that it is a poll that is recent – not old!)
4)Then, for the question you chose, post the following – using the question topic as your post subject
- the link to the polling report page where you got the data
- your own calculation of the margin of error (for one of the answer categories) and whether or not your margin of error matches the one they stated, and
- a brief interpretation of the results.
