1. Americans are most skeptical about the technique in which people are chosen to participate in the polls and are also skeptical about the minute sample size in comparison to the broad range of people that the polls are meant to serve. The article on Gallop polls stated that Americans are confident in the result of the polls but are skeptical about the way in which the polls are conducted. 2. To start out with, I agree strongly with random sampling. I think that sample that of which individuals are selected on purpose causes the polls or samples to become biased or controlled, almost in a sense to control the outcome. By selecting randomly this type of sampling allows for equal opportunity for all Americans to voice their opinions. 3. A list of telephone numbers is generated and entered into a computer which uses a process called (RDD), Random Digit Dialing which mixes up the numbers and generates a random list for the Gallop workers to call in order to notify their selected individuals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
