The Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion (MCIPO) conducts scientific-based research related to public opinion at the local, state and national levels. Since its founding in 2001, the MCIPO has focused its attention on measuring the public’s views on electoral and public policy issues with a concentration on environmental and health matters. MCIPO earned an A+ in FiveThirtyEight’s most recent Pollster Ratings—one of only six in the nation to do so.
