Grinnell College has a long history of exploring issues of purpose. We ask tough questions. We strive to think bigger. This legacy, coupled with our focus on engaging students and celebrating diverse perspectives, has been the foundation of the Grinnell College National Poll.
Launched in August of 2018, the Grinnell College National Poll continues this legacy by probing the political attitudes of the American public, providing thoughtful and timely information on current events, national trends and important policy questions.
The poll partners Grinnell College faculty and students with nationally-renowned pollster, J. Ann Selzer, to develop innovative questions that go beyond the news of the day. Results from this poll will be of value to Grinnell College faculty and students and used to develop new research, advance educational opportunities, and shed light on the changing political landscape of the United States.
As a school powered by constant innovation and creativity, this poll is a noteworthy addition to the rich and vibrant learning environment at Grinnell College.
