Polling and the public : what every citizen should know by Herbert B Asher( Book )

48 editions published between 1988 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: How can a public opinion poll of only 1,500 Americans accurately represent the entire population? Asher demystifies this and other polling issues with clear descriptions, colorful anecdotes and such up-to-date examples as polls concerning doctor-assisted suicide and NATO expansion. He explains how the wording and ordering of the survey questions, and the interviewer's techniques profoundly affect the response the pollster gets. Public opinion polls are pervasive, influencing discourse and decision-making on practically every issue of public life. Yet they are poorly understood and often misused. Asher explores how polls are constructed, conducted, and interpreted-and what role they have in influencing the very attitudes they measure. He discusses the use of polls in campaign politics, media coverage of public opinion, and he guides readers to make their own judgments

American labor unions in the electoral arena by Herbert B Asher( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are contemporary US labor unions irrelevant, or in fact a changing force to be reckoned with as they grow into a new economy in a globalized America? Is the current political power exercised by US labour unions more akin to the social movements of the 60s or the interest politics of the 90s? After winning the presidency of the AFL-CIO in 1995, John Sweeney and his colleagues have taken strides to make labour more important in the US economically and politically, despite reduced membership. Here, four authors come together to survey the status of trade unions past, present, and future, nationally as well as through the microcosm of the labour situation in Ohio, one of the largest, most representative, and most electorally significant states in the country

Political participation : an ISSC workbook in comparative analysis by Herbert B Asher( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in 4 languages and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This instructional collection presents subsets of data from existing national election studies which allow students to perform cross-national analyses of political participation. Data are provided for the following eight countries: Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada, and Germany. These countries were chosen by assessing the availability of ample and comparable measures of participation in the context of a national election, and by the presence of properties in these coutries that seemed likely to highlight the advantages of comparative analysis. Variables in the datasets reflect a perspective on political participation limited to election and campaign activities such as voting, working on behalf of a candidate, contributing money, displaying a button or bumper sticker, attending a rally, and discussing the campaign, as well as more general measures of interest in and attentiveness to campaigns and politics. In addition, measures of party identification and other demographic information are available in these datasets.... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/08350.xml
