Review the latest F&M College Poll results. The April 2016 survey reveals clear front runners in the presidential nominating contests. Consistent with the results of prior polls, Hillary Clinton has a sizable lead over Bernie Sanders, 58% to 31%. The poll also shows that both Democratic candidates are perceived favorably by registered Democrats. On the other side, though, the Republican presidential primary race continues to shift. Donald Trump (40%) leads, as he has since October, but he has expanded his lead over Ted Cruz (26%) and John Kasich (24%). Unlike registered Democrats, registered Republicans do not have uniformly positive feelings about their candidates. The poll received national attention, with coverage from The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Politico, and MSNBC. In Pennsylvania, the poll was covered by CBS Philadelphia, WITF, the Scranton Times-Tribune, the Reading Eagle, the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal, and many others.

- Read the Center's recently completed study of Pennsylvanians’ attitudes and perceptions about child abuse, conducted for the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance. Called Childhood at Risk: An Exploration of Perceptions and Attitudes Regarding Child Abuse, this groundbreaking new research examines attitudes about child abuse in order to identify how misconceptions can be corrected and children can be protected. For the study, the Center conducted both a statewide telephone survey and eight focus groups across the state. PFSA is using the research results to support efforts to educate citizens and increase the likelihood that abuse and neglect will be reported.
