Politics, Policy and Social Issues »

Many of our political analyses can be read at, and for a deeper dive try our political blog items on items such as an appraisal of presidential popularity, a look at the reputed “ Bradley effect,” “working-class whites” in the 2008 election, the “convention bounce” phenomenon, the odd roles of the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, an explanation of national polling during the presidential primaries – and why we do election polls in the first place.

See our AAPOR paper on best practices in pre-election tracking polls here. And for our range on policy and social issues, see these analyses of public views on health care, global warming, motherhood, pain, obesity and the ever-interesting subject of sex.
