EXAMPLE:

Hello!  I saw a poll on TV the other day.  It was a simple poll of favorability of our current president.  His numbers went down from the previous poll of 54% favorable and 47% unfavorable to 48% favorable and 52% unfavorable.  The population is all people in the U.S. of voting age and the sample was probably 1000 people in a major city in the United States.
