Adam Berinsky Visits The Cage

- August 20, 2008

We are pleased to have Adam Berinsky, a professor of political science at MIT, guest-blogging for the next week or so. Adam’s first book, Silent Voices, examines how polls may misrepresent opinion when respondents find ways to “cloak” socially undesirable beliefs. His forthcoming book, America at War, reconsiders the nature of public opinion in war time. Among his many findings is the unimportance of casualties or, more generally, battlefield success and failure, in public support for war. Lee blogged about this here.

Adam will be discussing the accuracy of presidential election polling and, in particular, the Bradley or Wilder Effect. We welcome him aboard.
