Get to know a useful resource. There is growing dissatisfaction with the USA process of electing a president and strong support for efforts to rein in the power of money on campaigns. Perhaps this is a problem in your country, too.

In the latest national poll conducted by the Fishlinger Center for Public Policy Research at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, there was considerable consensus with few partisan differences regarding campaign finance or voter laws. The question is: how should the Vincentian Family in the USA participate in these important policy issues. Prayer is one. And informed knowledge is another.

The Fishlinger Center for Public Policy Research at the College of Mount Saint Vincent seeks to foster meaningful dialog on key public policy issues through independent, objective public opinion research.

About the Fishlinger Center for Public Policy

The Fishlinger Center for Public Policy Research opened in February 2015 at the College of Mount Saint Vincent. The Center, a member of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), conducts deep and broad studies of public opinion on key public policy concerns through independent and objective research conducted by students, faculty, and other members of the academic community.

By providing a forum for discourse that can stimulate intelligent dialog about issues that deeply affect all Americans, the Center illustrates and enhances the relationship between the work of the College and the common good.
