Bobcat Knowledge is Power!
The Department of Political Science is young, scrappy, and hungry—and we aren’t throwing away our shot! We have an opportunity—here and now—to build on our incredibly successful 2018 poll of voters to become the leading source of political polling and analysis in the state.
Developed by the political science faculty and conducted by MSU students, we were the only university poll in the state to accurately predict the results of the competitive Senate and House elections. And, we developed the first publicly accessible database of Montana public opinion, including a post-election poll that helped us understand how the different campaign strategies affected the final result.
But we need your help! Please join us “in the room where it happens” (our research lab, the HELPS lab) to keep this incredible learning opportunity for our students alive this year and in future years.
