The second monthly Harvard CAPS – Harris Poll will release its results this week in conjunction with The Hill.

The nationwide poll of 2,092 registered voters was conducted online by the Harris poll in the United States between March 14-16, 2017, and looks at the newly proposed Republican healthcare legislation, the future of the Democratic party, calls to investigate contacts with Russia, privacy and cybersecurity, and Americans’ view of allies and foes around the world.

The survey was conducted by the Harris Poll online within the United States between March 14-16, 2017 among 2,092 registered voters. 

The results reflect a nationally representative sample. Results were weighted for age within gender, region, race/ethnicity, marital status, household size, income, employment, and education where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online.

The poll was supervised by pollsters Mark Penn, Harvard Professor Stephen Ansolabehere, and Dritan Nesho. Mark Penn is a former presidential pollster and has 40 years of polling experience. Stephen Ansolabehere has 25 years experience conducting survey research and experimental research in the field of political science. Dritan Nesho is a fellow at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences. The authors teach public opinion research at Harvard. 

Harris Insights and Analytics conducts the poll based on online methodologies they have been using for more than a decade and the results are donated to the Harvard Center for American Political Studies.

The results are represented as the results of the questions asked according to The Harris Poll methodology.
