The 1948 Presidential Election Polls

Description

One of the most famous failures of political polling occurred in the 1948 presidential election between Harry Truman (the democratic incumbent) and Thomas Dewey (the republican challenger). There were also a couple of third party candidates. The Gallup, Roper, and Crossley polls all predicted that Dewey would defeat Truman by a significant margin, but in fact, just the opposite happened. The results of the polls and the actual election results (in percentages) are given in the following table:

As the 1948 elections approached, President Truman was not popular. In April 1944, one poll showed Truman with only 36% of the population approving of his performance as President. He was attacked by the Republicans with slogans, such as "To Err is Truman" and "Had Enough".

“Those who do not believe in the ideology of the United States, shall not be allowed to stay in the United States,” declared the American Attorney General, Tom Clark, in January 1948. 1

In March, the Justice Department, over which Clark presided, determined that Italians who did not believe in the ideology of the United States would not be allowed to emigrate to, or even enter, the United States.

Case Study 2: The 1948 Presidential Election

Soon after the 1936 fiasco, the Literary Digest went out of the business of polling. In fact, they went out of business altogether. At the same time, the practice of using public opinion polls to measure the pulse of the American electorate was thriving. By 1948 there were several major polls competing for the big prize, that of accurately predicting the outcome of presidential elections. The best known was the Gallup poll, and its two main competitors were the Roper poll and the Crossley poll.
