Abstract

Progress in the technique of ascertaining states and trends of mass opinion has revived interest in the question of representative versus direct democracy. What is the proper role of public opinion in the American system of government? The problem is by no means new, but needs to be reconsidered in the light, not only of improvements in polling techniques, but also in relation to the public policy demands of our time and the capacities of the "average" man.
