Insights from the 2017 VOTER Survey

In July 2017, the Voter Study Group commissioned the 2017 VOTER Survey (Views of the Electorate Research Survey), which interviewed 5,000 Americans who had participated in similar surveys in December 2016, July 2016, 2012, and 2011. The survey allows for ongoing longitudinal analysis, and surfaces voter reactions to the events, policies, and happenings of the Trump Administration's first six months.

Robert Griffin offers the first set of insights based on the 2017 VOTER Survey data. The views of the signed author and not the larger study group. In the coming weeks and months, we will release additional reports from other authors on this and future surveys.
