UMass Poll

Have you ever wanted to ask a question on a poll?  Do you wish that pollsters asked different questions?  Well now is your chance to get involved!  With your help, UMass Poll will conduct the first crowdsourced poll!  That means we will poll on the topics you decide!  With your show of support, you can have the opportunity to help at various points in our project such as:  helping us decide which issues we poll about and which specific questions we ask.  You can even work with us to craft your very own personalized question for the poll!

With your donation, we will conduct a poll of Massachusetts adults on the topics you think are most important.  And the names of all supporters will be proudly displayed in a special Thank You section of the official release of the poll results! Your gift will help us cover the costs associated with planning and administering the poll, such as recruiting and interviewing respondents and collecting and analyzing the results. 

About Us:

The UMass Poll is committed to studying public opinion in Massachusetts and the United States to inform policymaking in the Commonwealth and beyond.  We are based in the Department of Political Science and we combine cutting edge Internet polling technology with leading expertise in political science. The result of this merger is accurate, cost-efficient, and swift survey results on the issues most important to Massachusetts residents.  

Please check out the other information on this page as well as at our website.  For the latest information you can also follow us on Twitter.  If you would like to contact us about questions or comments, please email us at poll@polsci.umass.edu.

Thank you for your continued support!  We look forward to creating this poll with your help!
