Examples include the ABC/Washington post poll on federalizing airport security screening post September 11th; the construction of polls to predict the outcome of presidential elections including Ross Perot's biased opinion poll, and the public outcry when civil unions for gay and lesbian couples were approved in Vermont.

Explores the crucial role of strategy in the two-stage electoral campaign system; the opportunities for citizens to choose, organize, and elect candidates who will pursue policies they favor and the need for campaigns to increase voter turnout by educating citizens about the importance and influence of their vote. Examples include campaign initiatives to elect Kennedy in spite of the fact that he was a Catholic; grassroots political activism in Montgomery County, Maryland, and the 1990's campaign by rock musicians to enourage young people to vote and sway opinions on music censorship issues.
