Why the podcast name, ‘Reasons Why’ for an organization that conducts research on religion, culture, and politics? It comes from the praxis we use inside our shop about how we apply and analyze polling and other research methods. At the cornerstone of our research, we strive to get from “the what” to “the why.” Public opinion surveys always capture what people are thinking, and that’s important. At PRRI, we are dedicated to further understanding why Americans hold the attitudes they hold, why they do the things they do, and why they identify with certain groups and not others. Across all of our vast issue coverage, we always dig deeper into “the why” question.
