What early spectroscopists noticed was that different materials produced light of very specific colours, represented by the appearance of very sharp lines in their spectra. At the time nobody knew why these lines were so sharp—the answer eventually came from quantum theory—but it was realized very early on that the pattern of lines emitted by a particular material in this way was effectively a fingerprint of that material. It was also realized that dark lines could appear in a spectrum, if one were to shine white light through cold matter.

What it means is that, even if political opinion in the population at large does not change at all the results of a poll of this size can differ by 3% from sample to sample.

If the variation is within the margin of error then there is absolutely no evidence that the proportion p has changed at all. Doh! So far I have only discussed discrete variables.
