PRRI’s mission is to help journalists, opinion leaders, scholars, clergy, and the general public better understand debates on public policy issues and the role of religion and values in American public life by conducting high quality public opinion surveys and qualitative research.

Review by: LA Carlson on Oct. 03, 2012 :
Facinating account of what the white working class are really thinking about same-sex marriage, abortion and the current election. Full of facts, charts and statistics that an educated adult would find helpful especially in our tiring, polarizing state of mind. Wonderful!
Thank you.
