Description

The Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling (ECPIP) at the Eagleton Institute of Politics has been conducting regular polling in New Jersey since 1971. The database provides access to the public opinion polls on major policy concerns and key state issues and political races. Generally, four polls per year deal with a variety of social and political topics that are of interest to New Jersey citizens. The complete poll questionnaires and numeric data are available at this site. All questionnaires are completely indexed, so the results of a search will include any questions that contain the specific search term. A browse mode enables users to browse by subject, poll date, and time-series.
