Cool new polling technique

This is an article about "deliberative polling", a way of gauging public opinion that relies on educating a group about the facts of a given issue, and then asking them what they would propose or how they would prefer to react to it.  I've heard of similar things in the US where they bring a group of people from across the political spectrum in the same room, then give them the basic facts around a thorny political issue, and they can often reach a consensus way forward after a few hours of deliberation.
