I’m not an expert in polling research methodology at all, but I’ve recognize a couple flaws in the polls we constantly see touted in front of us.
- Sampling methods are flawed and don’t pull from a complete census.
- Tracking polls work for following trends, but not to predict what’s going to happen on a single day.
- It’s difficult for polling companies to properly represent who has voted and who has not since states early/absentee voting vary great.
- People lie.
