United States public opinion – find it at Murphy Library

Roper CenterHow do people feel about corporate scandals? How satisfied are people at work? How familiar with the origins of life do people think they are? How worried are people about becoming victims of terrorism?

Murphy Library offers a huge database of poll results, where you can find out exactly how the American public feels about almost any issue. It’s called the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research and iPOLL, and it includes full text questions and responses for all United States public opinion polling firms from 1935 to the present.

You can search for very specific information, download results, view charts, and more. Check it out here, or find it temporarily featured on the library home page, or look for “Roper Center” in the library’s list of Databases by Title.
