About CCAP

Focusing on the unfolding campaign in weekly snapshots, the 2012 CCAP is a forty-four week rolling cross-section with a pre and post election interview of those respondents. The study first gathers baseline information for all participants, starting in December 2011. Next, the study will field 44 weekly surveys of 1000 adults representative of the U.S. population up until the November election. Finally a post election survey of all participants will be conducted immediately after the election. The baseline and post election surveys include only common content. The weekly surveys during the election year include 10 minutes of common content and 10 minutes (approximately 40 questions) of purchased team content.

Weeks & Teams

Each week prior to the 2012 election the CCAP study is in the field. When CCAP participants reserve and purchase a weekly sample, their ten minute survey module, in combination with the common content, is fielded to a representative sample of 1000 US adults. These 1000 respondents will have completed a baseline survey in December 2011 and the 2012 post election survey. Current CCAP participants are identified below.
