What the Canadian and British election polls tell us about Donald Trump

2015-10-22 Washington Post

Peter J. Loewen, University of Toronto, Arthur Lupia, University of Michigan and Daniel Rubenson, Ryerson University (and affiliated to IFN) argue in Washington-Post's blog The Monkey Cage that the problem in recent elections in Canada and the UK was that the media misread the polls and misled their audiences. They claim that "the same could be happening in the United States right now regarding the presidential campaign and, in particular, the candidacy of Donald J. Trump".
