Evaluating Poll Information
Ask yourself who was surveyed, what questions were they asked, when was it conducted, how were they surveyed, and why the polling organization might want certain responses.
Beware of self-selected polls. Participants should be randomly selected and should fairly represent the population.
Push polls, or political telemarketing designed to persuade large numbers of voters, are not actually polls. They usually ask one or only a few questions about a single candidate or a single issue and the questions are usually uniformly strongly negative of a candidate or issue.
