Summary

The PRRI Religion & Politics Tracking Survey was conducted by Public Religion Research Institute to examine attitudes on breaking news and emerging issues at the intersection of religion and politics. This survey investigated public views of the Republican primary candidates. Questions not only assessed basic favorability but also the degree to which candidates shared respondents political views or religious beliefs. Questions also included open-ended responses among self-identified Republicans about why they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of several candidates.

The ARDA has added seven additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.

Funded By

Public Religion Research Institute

Collection Procedures

Telephone interviews were conducted by professional interviewers under the direction of Social Science Research Solutions among a national sample of 1,012 adults, 18 years of age or older in the continental United States. Interviews were conducted from December 7 to December 11, 2011. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish on both landline telephones and cellular telephones (N=300). The randomly sampled telephone numbers were subject to up to four different call attempts.

Sampling Procedures

The sample derived by an unrestricted random-digit dial procedure, which minimizes serial bias and includes both listed and unlisted telephone numbers. Only one interview is conducted within an individual household. The sample is fully replicated and stratified by region to increase its representativeness.
