Exit Polling Articles

December 2nd, 2004, 11:30am by Sam Wang

Several interesting and good articles about exit polls. Here is a piece in the Washington Post about demystification of exit polls. Also, in this week’s New Yorker is a great article by Louis Menand on a meeting that took place at Stanford at which pollsters discussed the interpretation of this year’s results. Essentially, they think the values talk is a misinterpretation of a bad question. The article argues that it was essentially terrorism (i.e. 9/11) that swung it for Bush. The article is print only – go get it. The December 6 issue.
