Polling the opinions of voters has become a regularized electoral
institution in post-Third Wave democracies like Korea and Taiwan. At the
same time, the use, influence, and even accuracy of polling in elections
has increasingly come under scrutiny. This conference convenes leading
scholars of electoral politics in Korea and Taiwan, as well as counterparts
from the United States. The conferees examine the ways in which polling
informs and facilitates, or impedes and frustrates, democratic competition.
Among the topics that panelists will present on include the role of
political parties and mass media, public trust and confidence in polling,
the responsiveness of politicians to polls, and technological challenges
and innovation in our methods of gauging public opinion.
