Monthly Harvard-Harris Poll: January 2018 Re-Field
This survey was conducted online within the United States between January 17-19, 2018 among 980 registered voters by The Harris Poll.
The results reflect a nationally representative sample. Results were weighted for age within gender, region, race/ethnicity, marital status, household size, income, employment, political party, political ideology, and education where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online.
