comment During the U.S. Prohibition, how did they get away with drinking alcohol?
@user5001 - ...so the next logical question is the source for that assertion. About half of the book I linked is about that (the "Rise" part). So I'd suggest either picking up the book, or asking it here as a question.

@user5001 - There really wasn't any such thing as scientific polling until very late in the 1930's, and even then it tended to concentrate on presidential races.

Shame there isn't a list you can link to rather than clutter up your answer with a bunch of names, but otherwise a really good answer. +1

Note: The source for most of this answer is my reading of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. That book is highly recommended for anyone even remotely interested in Prohibition.
