How to make surveys cheaper and better

Let’s say that a survey company would like to make a poll about the upcoming American election. How do they go about it? The goal for them would be to make the survey both cheaper and better. To make the survey more cost efficient, it is important to know if it is possible to reduce the sample size in the survey without increasing the errors. Edgar Bueno, doctoral student, researches a method to do that.
