# 2016 United States Presidential Election

Read at least two of the articles and write about why the election polls went wrong and what (if anything) could be done to have more accurate election polls. Do you think you think the election would have turned out the same if they knew that Trump was in the lead? Will this information change how you view polls and statistics you hear and read about in the news? Make sure to cite which sources you use
