About the Author:

Jeffrey M. Stonecash is professor of political science at Syracuse University.

Review:

Political Polling is a first-rate 'how to' book for campaign professionals and a 'must-read' for anyone interested in basic research on campaign strategy that polling can provide. (Shapiro, Robert Y.)

Stonecash deals with almost every aspect of the craft of campaign polling in the US and does so in a clear and useful way. (Choice Magazine)

If you're thinking about running for office or just plain interested in campaigning, this is the book for you. Offering solid, down-to-earth advice, and a refreshing argument about the importance of polling in political campaigns, Jeffrey Stonecash's real life experience as a pollster shines through. (Dennis W. Johnson)
