Improving Public Opinion Surveys

This chapter reflects on the strengths and weaknesses of the content of the 2006 ANES Pilot Study as it played out in practice as perhaps the primary platform for the study of public opinion and voting behavior. Specifically, the chapter first addresses the extent to which the ANES succeeded in increasing the range of interdisciplinary participation and of generating more theoretically rigorous models of voting and turnout. It then considers the limits of the contextual framework within which the ANES is situated. Finally, the chapter finishes by considering the potential that new innovations might have for future ANES survey designs.
