    representative sample




    Hello everyone, I need your help yo determine if both examples are representative samples or not : First example : A liberal commentator on a television show asks his listeners to phone in whether or not they support the Presidentís policies. Ninety percent answer yes. Is this likely to be a representative sample of the U.S. population?

    Second Example : A conservative talk radio host conducts a poll among his listeners. He asks his listeners to phone in whether they support the Presidentís policies or not. Will this poll be a representative sample of the nationís population?
    I will give reputation and Rating, Thanks....
