The New Yorker’s Jill Lepore has a deep dive into the world of polling in the latest edition of the magazine. The piece asks a very pointed question: Is polling a good thing for us as a society?  Her argument goes like this: There are ever more polls to tell us what we think about, well, everything, even as the polling industry faces challenges from all sides due to low response rates and a move away from landlines — among other things.

The  country’s biggest pollsters have been facing the challenge of low response rates resulting from a number of factors including people moving away from using landlines.  In order to improve the value of their political opinion-taking, they’ve begun to turn to other methods of reaching the public, like digital surveys and mobile outreach.
