Public opinion is a collective good and important resource that both is shaped by and shapes the political discourse in the country. The site was developed to reflect the importance that public opinion has. Given the limited media availability to discuss polling, this is non-partisan source of polling data and analysis.
The data presented here is publicly available data that appears in news stories, in news releases or industry websites. Data collectors and sponsors (where this is provided) are always cited.

This is an idea I had and hopefully there is sufficient interest to keep this going. If you have any interest in participating by writing content [must be non-partisan] please let me know.
