Well, I don't see why Peter Levy shouldn't toot his own horn. I for one am
glad to hear about his book.

It's been suggested that the polls about the war also varied depending on
how the samples were selected. Young, white males (as usual) were more
pro-war than other parts of the population and polls hitting those segments
of the working class came out more pro-war than others. Similarly, young,
white males of so-called "middle class" pretensions (like the elitists of
the "weather bureau") were the most vehement exponents of anti-working class
sentiment in the anti-war movement.
