Public Opinion & White House Decision Making
Mark Penn, Pollster for President Bill Clinton; Jan van Lohuizen, Pollster for President George W. Bush; Moderated by Mark Kennedy, Director, George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Mark Penn, Pollster for President Bill Clinton; Jan van Lohuizen, Pollster for President George W. Bush

They've been in the opinion trenches, these two presidential pollsters -- one worked for Bill Clinton, the other for George W. Bush. What did they know and when did their candidates know it and how did they use it?

The Council is offering an opportunity to learn when it hosts a panel discussion of "Public Opinion & White House Decision-Making." Moderating this event is Mark Kennedy, former Republican congressman from Minnesota who now serves as professor of Political Management and Director of the Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington University.

The panelists represent two sides of American politics. Mark Penn, current Corporate Vice President, Strategic and Special Projects at Microsoft, served as chief adviser to President Bill Clinton in the 1996 White House campaign. He's credited with inventing the overnight poll, among other industry standards.

He'll be joined by Dr. Jan van Lohuizen, president of Voter Consumer Research and an expert in public policy and elections research. He was the polling executive for both of President George W. Bush's presidential campaigns.

This panel discussion of the lively science of gathering opinions and reactions is organized through The Society of Presidential Pollsters.
