Considered Opinions: Deliberative Polling in Britain

  • ROBERT C. LUSKIN (a1), JAMES S. FISHKIN (a1) and ROGER JOWELL (a2)
Abstract

This article presents the results of the first Deliberative Poll, in which a national British sample discussed the issue of rising crime and what to do about it. We describe Deliberative Polling and its rationale, the representativeness of the deliberative sample, the extent to which the participants acquired factual information about the issue and about politics generally, and how much and how they changed their views. We also weigh the extent to which such changes of view hinge on small group influences versus information gains.
