The pulse of what people are thinking

No Pollster, Mark Blumenthal cita um recente perfil de David Axelrod, assessor principal de Obama, publicado no NYT. O artigo fala das "reuniões de 4ª feira à noite":

"Jon Favreau, the president’s chief speechwriter, said there was a familiar refrain during these meetings, with Mr. Axelrod urging the team not to become consumed by the insularity of Washington. 'Can I speak on behalf of the American people here?' he said Mr. Axelrod often asks aloud. That is precisely why, Mr. Axelrod said, he convened the Wednesday Night Meetings: to keep the pulse of what people were thinking. Locked in the White House all day, he added, he can no longer hear those voices on his own.

[T]he Wednesday night meetings suggest that
the strong belief in polling and focus groups from the campaign are alive in the White House. Joel Benenson, a pollster for Mr. Obama, is among the participants in the sessions. He said that Mr. Axelrod often asked one question above all: 'How do we make sure that the arguments from the president’s agenda are made in the most persuasive way?'

Foi (também) sobre isto que eu tentei escrever aqui.
