We say p-hat is an UNBIASED ESTIMATOR since the mean of the sampling distribution is the same as the population proportion.
Notice that few samples yielded a p-hat above .50
The margin of error here is about 3%, as almost 95% of all samples fall within 3% of the population proportion.
Few samples yielded a p-hat less than .44
