The authors provide a useful and general overview of how political polling has evolved over the years and how it is practised across countries in the Asia-Pacific region; ranging from a still underdeveloped but gorwing activity in Singapore, to a tool well integrated into the political fabric of countries like Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines and to a highly sophisticated apporach as practised in Australia and New Zealand.
