Public Opinion on Congress 2020

Democrats and Republicans have different views about the importance of a free press, the political rights of political minorities, and an independent judiciary, according to a survey of public attitudes about Congress and public affairs conducted by Indiana University’s Center on Representative Government and Center on American Politics.

IU has been conducting its public survey since 2007, and the annual effort is overseen by Distinguished Professor of Political Science Edward G. Carmines, the Warner O. Chapman Professor of Political Science and a Rudy Professor at IU.
