And the Winner is . . . The science (and art) of predicting the winner of an election

Predicting the winner in an election depends on public opinion polls that are influenced by several factors including who you ask, what you ask, and when you ask. This science seminar includes hands-on, interactive activities that will help you understand why the results of public opinions differ and the meaning of “margin of error.”
