NSF awards $10 million for American National Election Studies
The American National Election Studies (ANES) is one of the most important tools for political communication research in the United States. The project has collected data on voting, political behavior, and public opinion in every presidential election since 1948, as well as most midterm elections. The NSF just awarded $10 million to the project for the 2010 midterm and 2012 presidential elections which will allow the project to futher expand its data collection capabilities. This is great news for political communication researchers!
