Principal Investigators: Shibley Telhami and Stella Rouse. A survey sponsored by University of Maryland Critical Issues Poll, fielded by Nielsen Scarborough. Central Findings on the State of the 2016 Presidential Race: While Hillary Clinton held a sizable lead over Donald Trump, Americans are also looking for a break with the status quo. About two thirds say they strongly agreed or somewhat agreed that “the system is rigged against people like me.” More than half of respondents in our sample see Donald Trump as the more likely agent of change, yet Americans are split on the type of political change they prefer (gradual or revolutionary). Key Findings  Questionnaire
