The University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication is a nonpartisan, interdisciplinary initiative that is committed to the emerging field of political communication. The CPC conducts national and Delaware public opinion polls to support its mission to examine the effects of political and social issues on communication. University of Delaware faculty and students are able to use the data in their research to advance the study of social science topics such as civil rights and liberties, media effects, and intergroup relations. To see previous CPC polls, go to Press Releases.
To complement the National Agenda 2017 speaker series, "As We Stand | Divided," the CPC partnered with RABA Research to conduct national polls to measure perceptions of Muslims, the trustworthiness of American institutions, and the Trump presidency. In March 2018, the CPC again partnered with RABA to conduct a national opinion poll about professional athletes and celebrities and their involvement in politics. The polls were supervised by the CPC’s Associate Director, Lindsay Hoffman (Associate Professor) and Paul Brewer (Professor) in the Departments of Communication and Political Science & International Relations.
