Goucher Poll

The Goucher Poll is conducted in a 40-station, computer-aided telephone interviewer (CATI) lab. Using a random sample of landlines and cell phones, the Goucher Poll measures the opinions of Maryland residents and voters on important policy, social, and economic issues.  The poll results and a methodology statement are released to members of the media and other interested groups as a public service to the state.

The Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center is a member of the Association of Academic Survey Research Organizations and the American Association for Public Opinion Research Transparency Initiative.

The Goucher Poll is fully funded by the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center endowment and does not take additional funding from outside sources.
