Hi Elliott,

I enjoyed your book! It provided a good overview of the history of polling which is something I did not know about. I first started to look at polls and election models because I wanted to see election predictions in a statistical manner. I remember fivethirtyeight in 2008 and that was my first real experience with polls. A few years afterwards, I started to look at issue polling and wondered why people wanted liberal policies but did not end up voting for Democrats/liberals. The book and your blog really brought the focus on polls and its relationship to democracy for me.

You go! When we get home will finish reading it. I claim bragging rights for knowing you when you still needed a copy editor. Dude!
