  1. Examine the poll at http://www.gallup.com/poll/184160/republicans-approval-supreme-court-sinks.aspx?utm_source=POLITICS&utm_medium=topic&utm_campaign=tiles.  What rival explanations should the pollster account for when measuring attitudes about the Supreme Court?
  2. Visit http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/24/showbiz/game-of-thrones-america/ and review the comparison between America and Game of Thrones.  Is this a zero-order comparison?  Why or why not?

Visit http://sda.berkeley.edu/sdaweb/analysis/?dataset=nes2012 and produce your own cross-tabulation using an independent variable such as age or gender and a dependent variable such as support for abortion rights, gun control, etc. and examine the results.  Now add a control for partisanship.  Do the results change?  If so, how and why?
