  • sampling error (including what influences it, and whether it has increased recently)
  • random digit dialing (including why this method is becoming less effective)
  • criticisms of polls (including bandwagon effect and exit polls) -- how can these be inaccurate?
  • reasons for the decline of trust in the government
