Nov 2 was the election date in many states in the United States. If you read the newspapers today (and maybe the next several days), you will find some discussion about exit polls. Last week we talked about sampling. Exit polls are polls taken as voters exit the voting places. For exit polls to be accurate, getting the right sample is very important.
How do you think the COVID-19 pandemic and the related changes may affect the accuracy of exit polls?
How do you think people can improve the sampling of exit polls given the changes in voting behavior?
Do you trust the results of exit polls you see? Why and why not? Why do you think we need exit polls to begin with?
