Karlyn Bowman of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) on “The Polls: What They Can and Can’t Tell Us”
For more than 80 years, polls have provided significant insights about American society. They have documented significant changes in our attitudes, but also substantial continuity. They have revealed significant contradiction or complexity in Americans’ opinions. Polls are too crude to make policy directly, but they can help policymakers understand what publics think. An intense focus on elections by the pollsters, while important, overshadows other important lessons from the polls about how and why our society has changed. Polls are under a cloud these days. The problems pollsters confronted in 2016 were not the same problems they found in 2020. We are likely to see polling innovations in 2022 and 2024, but can this valuable tool of our democracy be fixed?
Karlyn Bowman, a distinguished senior fellow emeritus at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), helped launch AEI’s work on public opinion in the late 1970s. In 1982, she started “Election Watch,” the longest-running political analysis program in Washington. She continues to compile and analyze American public opinion using available polling data on a variety of subjects, including the economy, the presidency, the environment and global warming, and women’s attitudes, and writes a weekly column for Forbes.com.
Ms. Bowman is the author of many extensive AEI Public Opinion Studies, including “The exit polls: A history and trends over times, 1972-2020” (AEI, 2022) and “Attitudes about abortion: A comprehensive review of polls from the 1970s to today” (AEI, 2021). In 2020, Karlyn Bowman received the Warren J. Mitofsky Award for Excellence in Public Opinion Research, one of the most prestigious honors in the public opinion field.
Sponsored by the Department of Government & Legal Studies with support from the John C. Donovan Lecture Fund, and the Office of the President of Bowdoin College.
Free and open to the public.
