The Democracy Fund Voter Study Group is using a unique longitudinal data set that most recently surveyed 8,000 adults (age 18+) in December 2016 via YouGov. Participants were identified from a pool of respondents who participated in a similar survey in December 2011, as well as a second pre-election interview in 2012, and a third interview following the 2012 presidential election. For these 8,000 respondents, we have measures of their political attitudes, values, and affinities in 2011 as well as self-reports of their turnout and vote choice in November 2012.
The top lines and crosstabs were updated on March 26, 2018 to correct for an error in the calculation of age groups.
