Abstract

Description

Much of the nation's attention focuses on the performance of the presidential candidates, with the press often scoring them as actors in a new theatre production. Personality matters but there are other critical factors that may matter more in determining who Americans pick as their next president.Andrew Kohut, President of the Pew Research Center, in Washington, D.C. and Director of the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press will identify the keys to the 2008 elections that many in the press miss. Andrew Kohut is the President of the Pew Research Center, in Washington, D.C. He also acts as Director of the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press and the Pew Global Attitudes Project. Kohut was President of The Gallup Organization from 1979 to 1989. Kohut is a press commentator on the meaning and interpretation of opinion poll results. In recent national elections, he has served as a public opinion consultant and analyst for National Public Radio. Kohut often comments on public opinion for television news programs including the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. He has written widely about public opinion for leading newspapers and magazines, as well as for scholarly journals. He is a frequent op-ed essayist for the New York Times and in the past has been a regular columnist for the Columbia Journalism Review and AOL News. Kohut has co-authored four books, including, mostly recently, America Against the World (Times Books) and The Diminishing Divide: Religion's Changing Role in American Politics, (Brookings Institution Press).
