Mathematics Colloquium | Rajeeva Karandikar
September 28 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Abstract: How can obtaining the opinion of, say 20000 voters be sufficient to predict the outcome of an election in a country with over 80 million voters?
Do the opinion polls conducted say a month before the election accurately predict what is to happen on the voting day?
I will answer these questions and share my own experiences with opinion polls and exit polls in India over the last 2 decades.
