AAPOR2009: Christopher Wlezien

Yesterday, I also interviewed to Temple University Professor Christopher Wlezien, who long-time Pollster readers may remember from the guest contribution he co-authored with Joseph Bafumi and Bob Erikson. We talked today about the work Wlezien and Erikson have done on the comparative accuracy of polls and political prediction markets:

Wlezien sent a copy of the paper he co-authored with Erikson that he presented yesterday. Their earlier article, "Are Political Markets Really Superior to Public Opinion Polls," appeared in Public Opinion Quarterly in 2008.

You can see all the videos from this year's AAPOR conference here (and last year's too).  I may also post occasional updates via Twitter.
