About the Author

David W. Moore, a prominent national pollster, is former Senior Editor of the Gallup Poll.

On Election Night in 2000, Moore was with the exit poll “decision team” of CBS and CNN, taking extensive notes on how Warren Mitofsky and Joe Lenski called, and miscalled, election races around the country — including the two miscalls and two rescissions in Florida.

He writes a weekly column (PollTalk) for the Gallup website that deals with controversial polling issues. He also writes several polling articles a month for the Gallup website.

Prior to joining Gallup in 1993, as a vice president and the managing editor of the Gallup Poll, Moore was founder and director of the Survey Center at the University of New Hampshire.
