    I know that in the middle of the day that the sun is really bright and its really easy to overexpose a picture and was wondering if a polarizer would help or hurt it to much considering thats the best time for me to take pics.

    A polarizer will neither help nor hurt. If overexposure is your problem, change your aperture and/or shutter speed and/or ISO settings.

    Do you mean the whole picture is over exposed or just the sky is getting blown out?
    If its just the sky i thought that it would help?

    A good CPL WILL help with a blown out sky, and reflections off water, but will not really help prevent overexposure due to a bright sun...

    You can adjust for that with ISO, aperture, shutter speed, like already mentioned.
