This report summarizes findings from a nationally representative survey of 2,345 adult Americans 18 years and older. The survey was designed by Public Agenda and fielded September 20 to 28, 2021 by Ipsos. Respondents completed the survey in English. When referencing this report, please cite Public Agenda.

The sample was randomly drawn from Ipsos’ online panel, partner online panel sources, and “river” sampling. Ipsos calibrates respondent characteristics to be representative of the U.S. population using standard procedures such as raking-ratio adjustments. The source of these population targets is U.S. Census 2018 American Community Survey data. Post-hoc weights were made to the population characteristics on gender, age, race/ethnicity, region, and education. Unfortunately, the sample size of this survey was not large enough to compare the views of Asian Americans to those of Black, Latino and white Americans.
