I have been asked to conduct a small survey and then analyse the results of the said survey for a class project. I decided to conduct an anonymous survey of voters for the 2012 presidential elections. The Information collected was :
Preference for Presidential Candidate
Personal Political Views (Liberal, Conservative, etc)
So I now have the data, but I am stuck as to what I can do with it. I know I can get the numbers for the voters in a state and compare them, but I need to initially present data summaries such as summary statistics or graphical displays and justify if my sample is a valid representation of the population. I fear I have taken on a bit too much and I would be very grateful for any advice as to what I can do and calculate with this data.
