Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
What [Rasmussen and Schoen] convincingly show is that economic stagnation and the collapse of equality and opportunity have produced an equally catastrophic decline in confidence in every sort of public institution - including political parties, big business, big labor, the media and mainline organized religion.
NewsMax
The unvarnished truth about the movement that is re-making the face of America. ... “Mad As Hell” is more than a ‘must read’—it’s a required read for every tea party loyalist and even those that fear them.
The Atlantic
Rasmussen and Schoen’s book clarifies much about our contemporary politics and identifies important causes of our current political malaise. It is the best available guide to the politics of 2010.
The Daily Caller
Essential to understanding America in 2010.
Foreign Affairs
Useful and balanced book...Readers who think they are in the political class might do well to pay heed.
Huffington Post
What makes this new book a must-read ... is the reality that our daily news cycle is in many ways driven by the Tea Party.

Scott Rasmussen and Douglas Schoen, Deans of Public Opinion Polling, have written a most informative book answering these questions. Public Opinion polls over a number of years inform us about the demographics and the political opinions these citizens hold and advocate. My students found the book very interesting, informative, and filled with surprises.
