passing of Warren Mitofsky

Earlier this month, a great social scientist passed away. Psychologist Warren Mitofsky died in New York city of an aortic aneurysm, at age 71. Most of his early work was with the CBS network developing models for early projections (e.g., exit polling). While his firm was a relatively minor player in the U.S., it was the major polling firm in Mexico (and a half dozen other countries). The expertise and objectivity of Mitofsky polling has never been doubted. He will be missed, but to his credit, Miktofsky assembled a great team to carry on his work.
