When I live-blogged the progress of the First Mate’s kidney transplant, we had a strange and interesting coincidence. One of the friends supporting the donor’s family turned out to be the mother of a graduate student at Stony Brook University who had recently requested a link to a survey. Neither of us realized it until we started talking about our sons in college, and when she told me her son’s name, I recognized it and looked up the e-mail.
After I told that story and linked to it, many CQ readers graciously took the survey. Now they have a follow-up survey, and I hope you take the time to take it as well. Chris writes:
Immigration Attitudes Survey
Increasingly, Americans are turning to the web for news about politics. This is a survey about online news coverage of the immigration issue. We are interested in your thoughts on this important political controversy. If you decide to participate in our survey, you will start off by answering a few questions about yourself and your political attitudes. Then you will watch a short news clip of an immigration story. After the clip, we will ask you some questions about your position on immigration policy. In total, the survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. The survey is completely anonymous and you can skip any questions you do not wish to answer.
Click here to take the survey.
Stony Brook has asked me to disable comments on this thread so that each participant does not encounter any bias from comments made by others. Let’s help Chris get plenty of feedback. Thanks in advance, and I hope you enjoy it.
