Politics Prof Ken Goldstein on his Trump vs Clinton demographic poll 

Politics Prof Ken Goldstein on his Trump vs Clinton demographic poll  | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"It’s hard to know what to make of the numbers because the polls often tell very different stories. These discrepancies start to make sense when you consider how pollsters arrive at their results. They don't simply tally up the answers to questions; they assign greater or lesser weight to each response based on private statistical models that predict which key demographic groups are likely to turn out to vote in greater or smaller numbers."
