Abstract: The National Annenberg Election Survey (NAES) is a rolling-cross sectional survey of the American electorate. The NAES breaks new ground in election surveys by interviewing randomly chosen Americans every night for an extended period in the presidential election year. It examines a wide range of political attitudes about candidates, issues and the traits Americans want in a president. It also has a particular emphasis on the effects of media exposure through campaign commercials and news from radio, television and newspapers. Additionally, it measures the effects of other kinds of political communication, from conversations at home and on the job to various efforts by campaigns to influence potential voters. The 2004 survey built on the work of the 2000 survey, which was the largest academic survey of the American electorate ever conducted. ANES 2000 has 79,458 respondents while 86,276 respondents were interviewed in 2004. Both 2000 and 2004 NAES contains panel surveys around key campaign events: pre-post primary election (Iowa, New Hampshire, Super Tuesday States, South Carolina and Michigan), pre-post conventions (Republican and Democratic), pre-post debates, and pre-post general election. Two stand-alone surveys were also conducted in NAES 2004. The first one interviewed active military personnel and their family members and the second one was a pre-inaugural cross-sectional survey conducted in January 2005.
