Presidential Selection Study

Principal Investigators
Walter J. Stone, University of California, Davis
Ronald B. Rapoport, College of William and Mary

With funding from the National Science Foundation, Professors Ron Rapoport and Walt Stone have carried out surveys with Democratic and Republican party activists since 1980.  In addition, since 1992 they have surveyed supporters of Ross Perot and the Reform Party.

This site is designed to provide scholars and others who are interested in the Presidential Selection Study with publicly available data and codebooks, as well as summaries of findings contained in reports that have been sent to respondents participating in the survey.
