Mood of the Nation Poll

Traditional polling forces citizens to place themselves into set categories, even on issues in which they are uninformed and uninterested.

The McCourtney Mood of the Nation poll gives citizens a series of open-ended questions, allowing them to answer in their own words—saying what is on their minds, what is important to them, and thereby providing a unique window on contemporary American politics.
