The challenge of representing people isn't in figuring out the most popular opinions (any pollster can do that), but in representing the diversity of views.
Issues that command national attention invariably are complex and involve considerations from many perspectives. It is easy to lose track of the real issues in all of the yelling.
The goal of the representative is to listen to all of the sides and put together intelligent public policy that takes into those views into account.
