With a new afterword by the author. Drawing on over a decade's experience at the Gallup Poll and a distinguished academic career in survey research, David W. Moorepraised as a "scholarly crusader" by theNew York Timesreveals that pollsters don't report public opinion, they manufacture it. In this highly critical book, he describes the questionable tactics pollsters use to create poll-driven news storiesincluding force-feeding respondents, slanting the wording of questions, and ignoring public ignorance on even the most arcane issues.
