    #5 Well Robert it's a sample size issue of the sample is too small and the margin for error is too big. That renders the poll practically useless.

    #4 Robert, I think that's probably stretching the truth to say they were all spot on. No one had predicted such a landslide victory for Trump.

    #2 @Anders Liu-Lindberg The issue isn't sample size. Sample size determines the margins for error, which are reported for reputable polls. Smaller the sample, larger the potential error.

    HOWEVER, sample size is determined mathematically, given how willing you are to tolerate different levels of error. It's not a "oh, let's talk to 1,00". It's what is the lowest number of people to sample if we want x level of error.

    Sample size is less important than whether the sampling is done correctly, and in truth, there is no single methodology to sample a population. There are multiple ways, including randomized samples, stratified sampling according to demographics, etc.

    So, sadly, most lay people don't have even a basic grasp of probability, statistics, etc, so polls are going to seem a complete mystery.

    Many of the polls were spot on, if you consider the margins of error reported, usually + - 3% but sometimes as high as + - 6%. Electoral college votes are not amenable to polls for obvious reasons.

    Finally, consider that probability tells us that for every x number of polls, all things being equal, that a certain percent, (depending on sample size, etc) will ALWAYS be wrong, just by chance.

    And finally, keep in mind that polls done by partisan entities have a vested interest in (usually) finding their preferred candidate in the lead.

    #1 Mr. Friedman you are correct. I am aware of only one medium sized poll that accurately projected the outcome (prior to changing their "algorithm") and that is Reuters. A large sized poll solicited 50,000 Americans , they were correct also. And, of course Wikileaks giant poll of +117,000 Americans was correct.

    But beyond polls , actions speak louder than words. Had the political pundits looked at YouTube , they would have quickly realized that most of America was enjoying and following Trump's messages at +-5 to 1 ratio against Clinton.

    11/11/2016 #2 Anders Liu-Lindberg
    #1 Yes @Phil Friedman I certainly believe that's part of the problem. I saw most of them used samples of around 1,000 people. That's crazy when trying to predict what 100+ millions will vote. Even in Denmark where they also use 1,000 people in a sample they can be quite off.
    Phil Friedman
    11/11/2016 #1 Phil Friedman
    Several very good points, Anders. Do you think that, perhaps, part of the problem may also be the attempt to extrapolate results from ridiculously small samples?
