If I could do one thing other than write my dissertation…

…it would be to run deliberative polls, or to assist in running them, or just to participate in one.

Some questions for Professor Fishkin: how much does this cost? Do you generally run polls on public or private money? My idea is to get a bunch of rich philanthropists into a deliberative poll about deliberative polls themselves. You can have Richard Posner present the case against deliberation, then trounce him and take all that money and give me a job. It’ll be fabulous.
