Focus Groups

In addition to helping to back these five partnerships, the Citizens Election Project provides a number of services to the partners, including technical and public relations assistance. The CEP has also contracted with the Washington, D.C.-based Harwood Group to conduct a series of 14 focus groups in Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida and California to gauge the attitudes and priorities of the voters prior to the presidential election season. The results of these focus groups will be available to the CEP partnerships and later will be given broad public dissemination on the Internet by SOUNDPRINT Media Center.
