News Pre-election surveys may influence votersbut that cannot invite a ban Ever since TV channels and newspapers came out with opinion polls on the assembly electionsthere has been talk of banning them Two things are being said: firstthat the polls are not scientificas they are based on the opinions of a very small fraction of voters; secondthat voters are influenced by the polls What is unsaid is perhaps a third reason: that this makes it possible for psephologists and the media to manipulate public opinion Let us address these one by one How can the opinions of a small fraction of voters tell the mood of a vast and diverse country It sounds counterintuitivebut the accuracy of the estimatebased on a survey done properlydepends on the sample size and not the population size This can be proven mathematically and is based on counting the number of samples where the proportion is close to that of the population Of coursethe operative part is a properly done survey If the agency cuts cornersthe estimate could be close to the true figurebut it could also be far off As for opinion polls influencing votersthey probably do I have data that makes me think so In every poll that we do (the CSDS pollbased on a methodology worked out in consultation with me)we ask the respondent whom they voted for in the previous election We have found thatinvariablythe recall for whoever won the last election is much highereven when our estimate for the current round is very good Thusin West Bengal in 2011over 70 per cent respondents recalled having voted for the Left Front in 2006 (whose actual vote share was about 50 per cent)even though they were going to vote for the Trinamool Congress this time Over the yearsee have observed this across the country It points to voters tendency to identify with the winner Sothere could be a tendency to vote for whoever is being projected as the winner But there is another effect: complacency Some believe that people were so convinced in 2004 that the NDA would win that several supporters did not bother to go out and vote This may or may not be truebut I do feel opinion polls have an influence Howeverthat is no reason to ban them Experts views on TV channelscampaign news and newspaper editorials also influence voters If the demand for a ban emanates from the apprehension that opinion polls could be manipulatedthe same applies to expert opinionsreports and editorials Since we do not ban thesewhy should opinion polls be banned If such a ban is imposedone wonders if a reporter would be prevented from writing about polls done privately For examplea highly reliable source could tell her a private poll commissioned by a corporate house says CKQ party is winning hands down Betting is illegal in Indiayet newspapers write about the odds offered on a cricket matchwithout giving names and addresses of the bookies Betting on an electoral outcome is a huge market tooand mainstream newspapers often report on the odds being offered on a candidate winning or a party getting a majority Would the law ban newspapers from doing this And can such a ban be enforced Indian news channels can be prevented from airing such contentas they are governed by stiff laws on uplinking of newsfeeds But what is to preventsaythe BBC or CNN from airing the findings of such a survey A question remains: why have opinion polls at all The answer to this lies beyond predictions on winners and losers Only an opinion poll can tell why people voted the way they did The CSDS has been doing such polls to understand the voters mind This alone can give social scientists an insight into issues that are important and how different socio-economic groups are voting For examplethe nuclear treatyfor which the Left withdrew support to UPA 1was a non-issue to the general public Alsoabout 5 to 7 per cent of Muslims have been voting for the BJP over the last two decades An outright ban is a bad idea Howeverall media should come together and agree on some normssuch as disclosure of methodology and other transparency measures Perhaps the Press Council of India can play a lead role in this The writer is directorChennai Mathematical
