AAPOR 2008: Dutton/Race and Gender of Interivewer Effects

Topics: AAPOR , Sarah Dutton

Another in series of brief interviews conducted at this week's AAPOR Conference, this one with Sarah Dutton, deputy director of surveys for CBS News. Dutton discusses findings presented at the conference (and co-authored by CBS colleagues Jennifer De Pinto and Fred Backus) regarding the effects of race and gender of interviewers on primary polling on the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

Dutton discusses these findings in the context of theories about the so-called Bradley-Wilder effect. I've written about that subject here and here. Politico's Daniel Libit's story today also reviews the debate over this issue during the 2008 primaries.
