New & Improved Polling the Nations Coming Soon

We are pleased to announce that our Polling the Nations database is being completely redesigned, rebuilt from the ground up, later this month. The new and improved resource—indispensable for anyone seeking poll data on issues going back more than a third of a century—will feature a cleaner, fully responsive design; thousands of new poll questions and interactive tools; and a streamlined, more intuitive user experience. Users will find the same authoritative data (and much more of it!) but with greater flexibility to customize and organize the information exactly as they wish.
