The following arrived in LU’s mailbox over the weekend. The author is a doctoral candidate in political science at the University of New York, Stony Brook:
My name is Raynee Gutting and I am conducting an online survey about people’s personal characteristics and beliefs, and how people become politically active and engaged. The study is brief and interesting, and should help me understand how individuals think about important political issues and American society more generally. In our current political climate, I think developing an understanding of how people interact with the political environment is critical for America to thrive. I hope you will take a few minutes to participate!
The survey can be accessed at this link. We ask you to please do not discuss your participation in the study for the next few weeks (please do not post comments), as to not influence other participants! As a thank you for your participation, you will have the opportunity to enter into a lottery to win one of four $25 Amazon gift cards.
We are told further that the questionnaire takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
