Review the Chapter 06 PowerPoint presentation, which can be found under Modules.
2- This assignment will focus on your ability to analyze the text content and subsequent information provided. Your responses should rely on facts and real-world examples. While opinion is fine, your responses should rely on facts and real-world examples. It is your understanding of the factual content that I am looking for versus your opinion. There will be times when you will be asked for your opinion, but our collective goal is to have a better understanding of how our government works.
3- Submit your response by replying below. You must post your complete answer before you will gain access to the responses made by your peers. Respond to each question in a separate paragraph. Do not include the questions. Please see the Submission Criteria section above before responding.
During the 2018 Presidential Election, pollsters forecasted the wrong outcome. Many criticize pollsters for putting too much emphasis on the electoral “horse race”—who’s winning and by how much—rather than the substantive issues of the day.
What is the proper role of polls in the electoral process?
Did it surprise you to learn that the Texas Tribune is one of the largest polling organizations in Texas? Can voters rely on journalists to assess poll results accurately when the polling and the reporting are conducted by the same news organization?
What makes the winner of an election particularly hard to predict when voter turnout is low?
What do pollsters know about the reliability of Texans aged 18 to 24 in casting ballots on election day?
4- Respond to at least 2 of your class peers and respectfully engage in a discussion based on their responses. Where possible try to select peers without a response from anyone. The goal is to analyze responses and support or respectfully counter.
