Yawning Bread on the TR person arrested: Opinion polls – an asset to the democratic process #sgelections #sgpolitics

It won’t surprise me if the argument is unearthed that opinion polls may mislead. Yes, this can happen, especially as some pollsters will surely fail to take the necessary precautions to ensure a robust survey, but then again, the risk of misleading others is no more or no less than reporting and media commentary. When a reporter or commentator exercises his judgement (or selectivity) as to what to report or what to discuss/speculate about, voters’ impressions of a candidate or party may be changed as a result. If the report or analysis is without basis or highly skewed, the impression so broadcasted would be something we’d call misleading. Yet, we recognise that on the whole, people have their native wits with them and that they will quickly learn to judge what sources to trust and what not to. In other words, the “it may mislead” argument holds little water.
