MILLENNIAL POLL TOPLINE RESULTS

RELEASED: SUMMER 2014

The Reason-Rupe Spring 2014 Millennial Survey was conducted by the Reason Foundation and made possible thanks to the generous support from the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation. YouGov conducted the survey between February 28 and March 11, 2014, and interviewed 2,362 respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 who were matched down to a sample of 2,000 to produce the final dataset. The margin of sampling error for the entire sample is +/- 3.4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level. Statistical results are weighted to correct for known demographic discrepancies. When feasible, answer choices within questions were rotated or randomized. Likely voters are those who said they are registered to vote and plan to vote in the 2014-midterm elections, with a margin of error +/- 5.6%. 

The poll questionnaire, crosstabs, and analysis can be found at reason.com/poll

Don't know/Refused responses are voluntary.

Due to rounding, accumulated responses may not total 100%.

Responses less than 1% are denoted by a "*".

YouGov conducted the survey online with its proprietary Web-enabled survey software, using a method called Active Sampling. Restrictions are put in place to ensure that only the people selected and contacted by YouGov are allowed to participate. Please visit reason.com/poll for full methodological details.
