Linda’s Answer

Why not? We can all do independent research for our own curiosity and publish our own blog. This page lists publications: http://www.zfic.org/Publication/Journals%20that%20publish%20original%20research%20by%20students.pdf

Plus, you can get involved in these organizations.

Another avenue is self-publishing on sites like Medium.com. That will save you the hassle of setting up and maintaining your own blog. Publishing on Medium also means your writing is on a platform that thousands (tens of thousands? hundreds of thousands?) of readers visit every day.

Head to Medium.com, browse the content there to get a feel for it, then create an account for yourself.

Volunteer on a campaign.
Volunteer to do calls on behalf of a campaign or organization. By volunteering, they may be willing to share their information and polling data with you (after the election, of course). That will give you good data to do your research from.
