Paul M. Green is the Arthur Rubloff Professor of Policy Studies, Chairman of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration and the Director of the Institute for Politics at Roosevelt University. Holli, a professor emeritus of history at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is the author of numerous books, including The Amercan Mayor: The Best and Worst Big-City Leaders and The Wizard of Washington: Emil Hurja, Franklin Roosevelt, and the Birth of Public Opinion Polling.

Historians have tended to point to John F. Kennedy's 1960 bid for the presidency as the first time a candidate relied extensively on public opinion polls to drive a campaign. Polling has come to define American politics, and is perhaps most clearly embodied in Bill Clinton, the post poll-driven president in history. Melvin G. Holli dismisses this notion, however, and reveals that presidential reliance on public opinion polls dates back to the New Deal Era, when Franklin Roosevelt employed a first-generation Finnish-American named Emil Hurja to conduct polls for this 1932 and 1936 presidential campaigns. Holli shows us how Hurja convinced the Democratic National Committee to allow him to apply the new science of polling FDR's presidential campaign of 1932. Roosevelt's triumph at the polls in that year and again in 1936, as well as the spectacular 1934 Democratic mid-term congressional victory was legendary. Holli restores Hurja to his rightful place in American history and politics, showing us that the Washington press corps were right on target when they dubbed Hurja the 'Wizard of Washington'.

A completely new chapter in the history of a key factor in modern politics: public opinion polling. The author convincingly demonstrates that scientific opinion polling made a difference in American politics much earlier than is normally assumed. Parallel to this, the book tells a story of a fascinating man whose life and achievement epitomize the American Dream.
