STUDY CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS:
The 1952 National Election Study emphasizes political attitudes in general along with attitudes and behavior pertinent to the 1952 presidential election. The interview schedule contained both closed and open-ended questions ascertaining a wide range of information. Most respondents were interviewed both before and after the date of the election. The pre-election survey tapped attitudes toward political parties, candidates, and specific issues, as well as personal and political background. The post-election interview concentrated on actual vote and voting-related behavior. Additionally, a sub-sample of 585 respondents was given a form B re-interview obtaining further information about organizational affiliations, personal data, and non-political attitudinal questions. This study particularly emphasized the perception of group behavior, especially the perceived political references of family, friends, and associates.
