Polling UnPacked - The History, Uses and Abuses of Historic/Heritage

polling_unpacked__the_history_uses_and_abuses_of


Mark Pack gives us the full story of political opinion polls, from the first rudimentary polls in the nineteenth century, to the very latest

In equal parts enlightening and hilarious, his book, Polling Unpacked needs no prior knowledge of polling or statistics to understand. Hardened pollsters will find much to enjoy, from how polling has been used to help plan military invasions to why an exhausted interviewer was accidentally instrumental in inventing exit polls.

Polling UnPacked shows you which opinion polls to trust, which to ignore and which, frankly, to laugh at. It will change the way you see political coverage forever. It also features alien invasions, Sherlock Holmes, a politician disguised as a chicken farmer, the slaying of popular polling myths and more.

Mark has extensive experience of conducting, commissioning and analysing political opinion polls, and his previous books include Bad News: What the Headlines Don’t Tell Us (2020) and 101 Ways To Win An Election (2021).
