George Gallup (November 18, 1901 – July 26, 1984) was an American statistician. He invented the Gallup poll, a successful statistical method of survey sampling for measuring public opinion.
- I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone — the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.
- Polling is merely an instrument for gauging public opinion. When a president or any other leader pays attention to poll results, he is, in effect, paying attention to the views of the people. Any other interpretation is nonsense.
