6 cards of the 114 in the game are polling cards. 4 players get 28 cards to start & 1 in 19 cards is a Polling card. Turn 2+ is 26 cards.
So on average every turn should have a poll (& 36% chance of a 2nd) & a reshuffle with odds going up slightly due to events dropping out. (ours was about 20 (?) at game end.)
3 players will reduce the odds by 1/4.
I have not counted the event cards yet.
Enjoy the chaos!

As far as I remember, every player is dealt 7 cards in the first turn. So 28 at the beginning, then 26.

Re: Brief Card Statistics Part 2 for newbies
If unfamiliar with the cards here are some CATEGAORY summaries and ROUGH #s of how many are floating around in the 114 cards in the game:
? = titles vary but effect is stated.
(Many other cards exist which are variable)
# in / General Effect
Cards which affect entire TURN:
2 Coal Shortage - Player chosen stays IN ONE region entire turn.
5 ? Player stays out (can't add PCF)of a state """.
4 ? " " " " of a region """.
Cards altering PCFs in a noticable way:
11 Platform speeches - +/- 1d6 plus 1 or 2 pcf in a region.
4 Scandal
4 Positive spin - bounce the scandal.
2 ? steal a card
3 ? roll a die to see who gets benefit/deduction
5 Senator endorsements get control of UNCONTROLLED
(w/presence)state in a specified region use early in game
2 Govenor "" "" ANY state you are in. New York may
send you a NICE telegraph!
11 Lesser Endorsements. Add some PCF.
6 Polling cards
4 Polling reaction card- Poll somewhere else !
So remember: some events leave the game so the odds go up the recycled events will appear.

Actually, with the 3 reaction polling cards that let you initial polling in a different region if the polling card is not already there, that brings the number of polling cards to 9.

So you should get a polling card 1 out of 12.67 cards dealt.

Edited to correct amount of cards and card average
