    I couldn't get into this book. Summary: LBJ, JFK, Reagan (though the author doesn't like his politics), Clinton were good and "staying connected" with the public; Obama is the best. Nixon, Carter, Bush (41) = bad. Bush 43 didn't care about polls or public opinion. Polls and pollsters may point you in the right direction but maybe not. The author did offer insight on how to use polls, mainly don't be an opportunist based on hot topics but use the data to frame your existing narrative. Basically, I I couldn't get into this book.
