about

Polling for Democracy is the first work to explore the importance of survey research in this developing country. Eight essays address not only the broad and specific aspects of the role that public opinion polling plays in Mexican politics but also the methodology of conducting individual surveys. The results of these polls provide compelling insights into the country's changing values and vividly reflect Mexico's political culture.
Roderic Ai Camp directs the Tinker Mexican Policy Studies Program at Tulane University and chairs the Political Science Department.
