One thought on “Stalin: Our Hero

  1. It would be interesting to know what the categorical breakdowns of the samples for these polls were, especially age wise. I wonder what the age distribution was of those with whom Stalin was popular, particularly whether they had been alive during the post-war period or if they were younger and perhaps learned about him through a re-worked historical lens.
