|Paul Lavrakas Reflects on |
"Exit Polls and Election 2010"
Paul Lavrakas, Politics & International Affairs Visiting Scholar, met with faculty and students to discuss his election night experiences working with the Associated Press to interpret 2010 exit poll data. Lavrakas, an expert in the areas of survey research and methodology, has a long track record of working with media outlets to interpret exit poll data and call election races. He mused about being behind the scenes during the 2000 election. Just as he said Florida is too close to call, Fox News called the race for George Bush. This set in motion a legal battle that was eventually decided by the Supreme Court. While not as momentous as the 2000 election, he will remember this year's race as historical in nature. The exit poll data demonstrates that this was a year of voter dissatisfaction with everything and everyone, rather than a mandate for Republican policies.
