Question 1 out of 5

Q: As election results continue to evolve, many were surprised this year when polls leading up to the election––showing that former Vice President Joe Biden would defeat President Trump by a wide margin and the Democrats would take majorities in the House and Senate––were far from accurate. What factor(s) have made pre-election polls prone to inaccuracy, particularly in the 2016 and 2020 elections?

Select your answer:
A. Republican voters have become less likely to respond to polls
B. Polls don’t account for a wide range of demographics like gender, race, and income level
C. Polls only ask about the presidential candidates; they don’t account for Congressional races and state elections
D. Polls are only conducted via phone call
