Before you trust the polls verify them

The polls all say one one thing. But we know that polls are not necessarily accurate. So you should make sure to read the fine print.

There is actually a lot of fine print that you should go through. Michael Hammond was General Counsel to the Senate Steering Committee and says who conducts the survey is important.

"Peter Hart, who did the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll showing Trump was going to lose by 14 points is clearly a Democratic operative," Hammons explained.

That's obviously a problem. Another problem is in how many people you actually talk to.

"If you take a small sample, you are more likely to get people who will be a glitch in the poll," Hammond stated.

One last thing. Polls with 'registered' voters, are less likely to be accurate than 'likely' voters.
