Summary

The October 2011 Religion and 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 assessed public views about the Republican primary candidates. It also examined public knowledge about Mitt Romney's religious beliefs and which candidate for the Republican presidential nomination had the religious and political views that were closest to those of the respondents.

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

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 1,019 adults, 18 years of age or older in the continental United States. Interviews were conducted from October 19, 2011 to October 23, 2011. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish on both landline telephones and cellular telephones (N=294). The randomly sampled telephone numbers were subject to up to four different call attempts.

Sampling Procedures

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