Question: Suppose 70 of all voters voted for the Republican candidate

Suppose 70% of all voters voted for the Republican candidate. If an exit poll of 50 people were chosen randomly, would it be surprising if less than half who were sampled said they voted Republican? To reason an answer, use the applet described in Activity 2 to conduct at least ten simulations of taking samples of size 50 from a population with proportion 0.70. Note the sample proportions. Do you observe any sample proportion less than 0.50? What does this suggest?
