Question

A political candidate, Bill McWaffle, is personally indifferent on the issue of the legalization of gambling in his state and to this point has not taken a public stand. The election is fast approaching, and he has decided that he will adopt a public stand if at least 65 percent of his constituents feel one way on the issue. Unless there is at least a 65/35 percent split in opinion, he will not take a public stand for fear of alienating a large segment of voters. A random sample of 200 voters shows that 68 favor legalization and 132 oppose. If he wants to be 99 percent certain that at least 65 percent of his constituents feel one way about the issue before he takes a public position, what should he do?
