On the heels of the 2012 presidential election, the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society in the University of Arkansas J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, together with the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, conducted a comprehensive online national poll of political attitudes and behaviors. The 2012 Blair Center-Clinton School (BCCS) Poll oversampled participants from the southern region of the United States, as well as oversampling African Americans and Latinos, providing unique perspectives on contemporary politics. With more than 3,600 respondents from across the nation, the BCCS Poll provides a comprehensive and uniquely accurate perspective on how the country evaluates public figures and current public policies – and how these evaluations vary across race and geographic region.
