520 1# - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc "Is polling a process that brings "science" into the study of society? Or are polls crude instruments that tell us little about the way people actually think? Regardless of which view one subscribes to, there is little doubt that the role of public opinion polls in government and mass media has gained increasing importance with each new election or poll taken." "In Constructing Public Opinion, Justin Lewis presents a new look at an old tradition -- the first study of opinion polls using an interdisciplinary approach that combines cultural studies, sociology, political science, and mass communication. Rather than dismissing polls, he considers them to be a significant form of representation in contemporary culture; he explores how the media report on polls, and, in turn, how the media influence the way people respond to polls. Lewis argues that the media tend to exclude the more progressive side of popular opinion from public debate, and while the media's influence is limited, it works strategically to maintain the power of procorporate political elites.
