LNP - Dubious about poll results

Recommended Posts

LTnewsDawg

If we learned anything from the 2016 presidential election, it should have been that pollsters have a very poor record in predicting results. The majority of national polls failed to predict the election of Donald Trump, and I don’t believe this was a coincidence. In fact, all the major networks refused to even acknowledge that Trump had a chance of winning the election. This is why I find the recent F&M poll on gun issues so disturbing (“Voters favor more gun regulations,” March 29).

For example, the poll states that 86 percent favor enhanced background checks when purchasing a gun, 61 percent favor banning so-called assault weapons and 59 percent support raising the minimum age to purchase a gun to 21.

Considering that Pennsylvania is both a “stand your ground” and a “castle doctrine” state, I find these results highly misleading.

Historically, polls are inaccurate, questions are misleading and the results do not represent the opinions of the voters in Pennsylvania.
