Guide to Public Opinion and Electoral Behavior

PLEASE NOTE: The addition of 2012 Time Series data to Guide tables constitutes the addition of data from the 2012 Combined sample (both face-to-face and Internet cases). Every effort was made in 2012 to maximize comparability between the face-to-face and Internet question administrations, however a few differences are noted in the 'NOTES' section of some of the top-level tables (which are listed below).


Listed are the primary-level ANES Guide tables. Most have links to
secondary tables as described in:
