  • gauge public
  • Yes, there are always predictions that can be made, but unless they are counting the entire country's population as a sample (an impossible task), there is still a margin of error, and that margin of error is the margin of doubt of one poll or one statistic being able to gauge public opinion.

  • We talk about public opinion like it is a science, but I think it is an art- and most of it is in the interpretation of the data and the way that these data are gathered in the first place. (ivn.us)
