In midcentury America, the public opinion polling enterprise faced a crisis of legitimacy. Every major polling firm predicted a win for Thomas Dewey over Harry Truman in the 1948 presidential election-and of course they all got it wrong. This failure generated considerable criticisms of polling and pollsters were forced to defend their craft, the quantitative analysis of public sentiment.

Pathways to Polling book. Amy Fried demonstrates how interactions between ideas, organizations, and institutions produced changes in the technological, political, and organizational paths of public opinion polling, notably affecting later developments and practice. Public opinion enterprises have changed a good deal, in the intervening half century, even as today's approaches have been deeply imprinted by these early efforts.

Amy Fried has done it again, producing a very fine book on the dynamics of American public opinion expression and measurement.

In midcentury America, the public opinion polling enterprise faced a crisis of legitimacy. Every major polling firm predicted a win for Thomas Dewey over Harry Truman in the 1948 presidential election―and of course they all got it wrong. This failure generated considerable criticisms of polling and pollsters were forced to defend their craft, the quantitative analysis of public sentiment.

Pathways to Pollingargues that early political pollsters, market researchers, and academic and government survey researchers were entrepreneurial figures who interacted through a broad network that was critical to the growth of public opinion enterprises. This network helped polling pioneers gain and maintain concrete, financial support to further their discrete operations. After the Truman-Dewey debacle, such links helped political polling survive when it could have just as easily been totally discredited. Amy Fried demonstrates how interactions between ideas, organizations, and institutions produced changes in the technological, political, and organizational paths of public opinion polling, notably affecting later developments and practice. Public opinion enterprises have changed a good deal, in the intervening half century, even as today’s approaches have been deeply imprinted by these early efforts.

  • Mash
Political polling has become a powerful influence on the American electorate. Pathways to Polling provides fascinating history and, with it, perspective on the origination of polling and its role in American politics. Written in a style accessible to both scholars and lay readers, it is an especially good read during an electoral season where polls themselves become almost daily news.
  • Fordregelv
Amy is insightful and always has an interesting perspective. I appreciate her views and look forward to reading her columns and books.
  • Unde
This book is not only insightful, but timely. The universe of people who respond to polls and the actual electorate needs to be disaggregated and Ms. Fried does it elegantly.
  • Dammy
Far from being a Marxist, Professor Fried is a thoughtful scholar who gives a persuasive presentation from an admittedly left of center point of view.

There are scores of polemics in this region of inquiry, hers is a refreshing examination of important public policy matters.
