... a must-read for any student of public opinion. ( Political Studies Review)
Gilen's elegant synopsis of question wording and context experiments stands out. Students of American public opinion should survey this collection carefully. ( Political Studies Review)
Do politicians listen to the public? When? How often? Or are the views of the public manipulated or used strategically by elites? In this book, leading scholars of American politics assess and debate the impact of public opinion on policy making. Central questions include the changing relationship between opinion and policy over time, how key actors use public opinion to formulate domestic and foreign policy, and how new measurement techniques might improve our understanding of the results of polls and survey research.
