Confused by Contradictory Polls? Take a Step Back

nytimes.comIt has been a rocky few weeks all over the world. Only a few surprising presidential poll results have broken through in a news cycle dominated by shootings by and of the police, the F.B.I.’s decision not to indict Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s vice-presidential pick, more terror in France and an attempted coup in Turkey.
