    In 2009, we expanded our scope a third time to include the population of young Adults aged 18 to 29. While we will continue to report on the attitudes and opinions of U.S. college students, this change in our research subject was made to allow for better and more direct comparisons to the broader set of election and general public opinion research tracking data, which tends to track the 18- to 29-year- old demographic group. Our Fall political tracking surveys will include samples of N=2,000, while the Spring semester’s research will be more in-depth and include N=3,000 interviews. All of our interviews are conducted in English and Spanish. Using GfK (formerly Knowledge Networks) as our research partner, IOP surveys use RDD and Address-Based Sampling (ABS) frames and are administered online (see Appendix).
    The interviewing period for this survey of N=2,089 18- to 29- year olds was October 30 to November 11, 2013. The margin of error for the poll is +/- 2.1 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level. During the interviewing period, major media stories included the technical failures, the TSA shooting at LAX, elections in New Jersey and Virginia, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s substance abuse troubles, Republican leaders’ assertion that there would not be no immigration reform this year and President Obama’s apology to Americans losing coverage.
