Presidential Manipulation of Polls and Public Opinion: The Nixon Administration and the Pollsters
Lawrence R. Jacobs and Robert Y. Shapiro investigate President Nixon's relationship with the public opinion pollsters, Louis Harris and George Gallup. On the basis of their examination of previously unopened archives, Jacobs and Shapiro argue that the pollsters' behavior during Nixon's presidency violated professional standards of conduct and that today's pollsters should avoid close relations with elective politicians.
