July 1, 2018The characteristics of U.S. House districts vary widely from coast to coast and even within states. Our nonpartisan “Representing US” project explores the differences across all 435 districts—from education and poverty levels, to racial and immigrant make-up, to the size of each generation of voting age, partisan lean, and more. Gain insights about the households that will elect—and be represented by—the new House as we count down to the November midterm elections. Explore your district or those that hang in the balance in our Representing US interactive tools.
June 27, 2018The U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2018 ruling in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) case—which struck down mandated fees from those covered by employment contracts in public unions—has wide-ranging implications for the future of organized labor. Just prior to the ruling, the APM Survey asked a nationally representative survey of American adults what they think about labor unions. The results indicate Americans are evenly divided about whether union dues should be mandated or the choice of each worker. However, 62 percent of Americans feel the United States would be “better off” if unions were “stronger” compared to only 23 percent who prefer “weaker” unions. On both topics, differences of opinion exist by income, political party, race and more.
April 2, 2018We asked a representative sample of more than 1,650 Minnesotans—from the Twin Cities and throughout Greater Minnesota and major regional centers—what they think about everything from their own personal finances to the future of our state. Their responses provide insights on jobs, health care, immigration, politics, and much more.
February 19, 2018On February 4, 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles bested the New England Patriots (41-33) in Super Bowl LII. The APM Research Lab wished to know whether Minneapolis, Minnesota, which hosted the game at U.S. Bank stadium, also “won”—in terms of altering public perception of its character. The APM Research Lab conducted the National Survey of Super Bowl Impressions to assess whether Americans knew that Minneapolis was the host city, and whether media coverage of the event changed their impressions of Minneapolis as a desirable place to visit. Thirty-seven percent of Americans said they were “more likely” to think of Minneapolis as good place to visit, compared to 27 percent who said “less likely.”
