Religion and Public Life Survey, 2008

In the late summer of 2008, the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life commissioned a telephone survey to investigate the public’s views on the 2008 presidential election and the dynamics of support for the contenders, John McCain and Barack Obama. The survey probed a variety of topics, including: public leaders and religion, political parties and religion, government funding for religious social services, universal health care, abortion, gay marriage and attitude toward religious groups. Interviewers made a focused effort to sample younger adults. The database is available from the Association of Religion Data Archives.
