Political Opinion Polling in Italy

  • Pierpaolo Luzzatto-Fegiz
Chapter

Abstract

When George Gallup started his pre-electoral polls in 1936 in the USA, very few in Italy took notice of them. For those who did, it was obvious that such an operation would not be possible in fascist Italy, where the only admitted opinion was that of Mussolini. When Fortune magazine began publishing the results of Elmo Roper’s surveys on the attitude of Americans towards Germany, Great Britain, the war and the possible involvement of the USA, the few who could afford Fortune and understand it perceived that such data were indeed very important; but the press did not report them and nobody discussed the method.
