Results of innovative Cornell-led public opinion survey to be released Friday

Answers by more than 19,000 Americans to a wide-ranging survey about political views will be revealed Friday at an online and in-person event on the Cornell Tech campus in New York City

The NSF-funded project is hosting a hackathon featuring experts from industry, academia, and media as they offer their perspectives on the innovations, methods, and data from the 2022 Collaborative Midterm Survey.

The Cornell-led survey engaged three partners in using a combination of new and longstanding methodologies to generate election insights while also advancing the science of survey research.

Each survey respondent was asked a series of questions that included:

  • Regardless of the outcome, will you accept the midterm elections results?
  • Is your state on the right track or the wrong track?
  • Should abortion be legal?
  • Should background checks be required for gun purchases?

The hackathon panelists have received the survey data in advance and will incorporate their analysis into presentations and comments. Panelists include journalists Nate Cohn of the New York Times, Jennifer Agiesta of CNN, and G. Elliott Morris of The Economist.

All data and methods will be made publicly available at the time of the event. In-person registration for the event is full but registration to attend virtually will be available through 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19.
