Abstract

In November 2012, the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society, part of the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas, along with the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, conducted a national poll with oversamples of southerners, African Americans, and Latinos. The 2012 Blair Center-Clinton School (BCCS) Poll followed the 2010 Blair Rockfeller Poll, which began to uncover a more nuanced picture of southern politics within the larger American political landscape. The national sample included 3,606 respondents, with 1,792 participants living in the geographic South, defined here as the 11 states that formed the Confederate States of America. The sample also included 1,110 Latino, 843 African American, and 1,653 non-Hispanic white respondents.
