CLEVELAND, June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland.com and parent company, Advance Ohio, team up with Baldwin Wallace University on a new, ground-breaking method to determine where Ohioans stand on state and national political issues.
Cleveland.com is working to build a statewide panel of 10,000 participants. Researchers at Baldwin Wallace University's Community Research Institute (CRI) will analyze the survey data to gauge Ohio voter sentiment on an ongoing basis. The goal of the panel, Ohio Matters, is to become the definitive, go-to source for where Ohioans stand on political matters.
These surveys are comprised of diverse participants representative of people from all walks of life across the state.
2016 was an epic election year where traditional polling methods failed. The new polling approach recognizes the crucial role that Ohio plays as a swing state in presidential politics.
By participating, citizens can ensure that their voice will be heard. If you are a citizen of the state of Ohio, you can join the panel by providing basic contact information including your email address and you will receive an email containing links to the questionnaires as they are ready. Your response will be kept completely anonymous.
