How you can use a political poll
The political poll template can be used to gather data during a presidential election, state and local elections, or even student government campaigns.
Getting a Representative Sample
The mission of political polling is to gauge the political opinion of the entire nation by asking only a small sample of likely voters. For this to work, pollsters have to ensure that the sample group accurately represents the larger population. If 50 percent of voters are female, then 50 percent of the sample group needs to be female. The same applies to characteristics like age, race and geographic location.
Poll questions and answers
Questions and answers are the reason we have political polls. Which candidate will you vote for in the election? Do you approve of the president's performance? How likely are you to vote in the midterm Congressional elections? But the order of those questions, and the answers that respondents can choose from, can significantly affect the poll’s accuracy.
The ordering of questions is known to play a significant role in influencing responses to political polls. Let's use the example of the horse-race question, in which respondents are asked whom they would vote for in a head-to-head race: Candidate A or Candidate B. To ensure the most accurate result, political pollsters ask this horse race question first. Why? Because the wording of preceding questions could influence the respondent's answer.
