The Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES)  is a 50,000+ person national stratified sample survey administered every year (and twice in election years) by YouGov. Many UMass faculty are involved in this study, and this panel will highlight what some are finding, as well as how they are engaging with wider policy and voting publics to share their analysis.
