Choose a recent poll on a subject that interests you.  Be sure to include a direct link to the poll.  If you need a resource, you can begin with Gallup.com.  Gallup polls are very reputable.  After you have located a poll, answer the following questions:
1. What was the topic of your poll and what questions were asked?  You must include a link to the poll.  Be sure the link works.
2. What was the sample size of the survey?  What were the numerical poll results for at least one of the questions?
3. What was the margin of error (MOE)?  Note that while all legitimate polls disclose this information, you may have to read to the end of the article to find it.  Usually a +/- number.
4. Using the MOE, construct at least two Confidence Intervals for results of the poll.  Be sure to write the intervals using appropriate interval format.
5. Interpret the confidence intervals.  Be sure to write your conclusion using complete sentences and include a common sense interpretation.  That is, how would you explain the results to someone who has never taken statistics.
