This session will examine how public policy is shaped from two perspectives: The Role of Think Tanks and The Power of Polling & Survey Research. Participants will explore the role of think tanks and other organizations which work at the intersection of politics and policy. We will also discuss the impact of survey research and public opinion polling on the policymaking process, and how organizations sample public opinion and how business and political leaders use this information in the policy debate.
