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 2,512 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 432 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.:

The development of the Black Elected Democrats of Ohio (BEDO) into a viable state legislative caucus by Margaret J Simms Maddox( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to place BEDO in a national context we examined data on the relative status of groups of black state lawmakers nationwide. It was found that BEDO is one of a very few groups of black state lawmakers with significant status within its respective Legislature. It was also found that size of group alone was not a determinant of legislative effectiveness
Soviet military doctrine and strategy shifts : principal dynamics and implications for conventional warfare by Howard Frost( )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second, the study attempts to explain why these different factors have been important at different stages in the development of Soviet doctrine since World War II and, for particular stages, why some factors were more important than others. In general, leadership change appears to be the most important factor, with changes in military technology and U.S./NATO doctrine being of secondary significance. While economic constraints appeared to be of little import from 1945-1985, these constraints were found to be more significant for the doctrinal debate since 1985

The Decline of Attitudinal Barriers to the Success of Contemporary Independent Presidential Candidates by Stephen Martin Nichols( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aspirations of independent presidential candidates have long been frustrated by the considerable impediments to their success in the American electoral environment. In addition to difficult structural hurdles such as ballot access and campaign finance laws favoring the protection of the major political parties, the accomplishments of independent nominees have also been hindered by numerous attitudinal barriers. Chief among these attitudinal obstacles are voter loyalties to the major parties; the self-fulfilling perception that independents cannot win, and that a vote for them is therefore wasted; and the fear of repercussions from others in one's social circle should one defect from the two-party fold in support of an independent "intrusion."
Political movements, group consciousness, and participation in America by Jeremy Zilber( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using National Election Studies from 1952 to 1992, I develop and test a measure of group consciousness that has several theoretical and practical advantages over existing measures. With this measure I analyze past and present associations between group consciousness and conventional forms of political participation among African Americans, women, and religious fundamentalists. I argue that while the aggregate effect of group consciousness should vary in predictable ways across groups, its effect on individuals should not vary significantly by either group membership or time. With minor exceptions, these hypotheses are confirmed
Financing the Presidential General Elections in Ohio : a study of state party contributors and soft money by Karen C Snyder( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With regard to soft money, the research results clearly demonstrate that previous measures of soft money are woefully inadequate, and current practices with regard to soft money raise serious issues of equity and publicity that undermine the intentions of campaign finance laws. In spite of this, there is evidence that soft money from "fat cats" is helping encourage grass-roots participation among ordinary citizens
