Cards Against Humanity’s Pulse of the Nation

In mid-November 2017, the creators of Cards Against Humanity (self-described as “a party game for horrible people”), announced a campaign, “Cards Against Humanity Saves America,” wherein 150,000 people paid Cards Against Humanity $15 for entry into their year-long campaign to “save America.”

As part of the Cards Against Humanity Saves America project, donor money was used to fund one full year of monthly public opinion polls. The card game company used Survey Sampling International to ask representative samples of the American people via cell phone and landline about their social and political views, what they think of the president and various other topics. These individual-level datasets to date are now archived with the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research at Cornell and the questions can be found in the iPOLL question database.

More information can be found at the Cards Against Humanity’s “Pulse of the Nation” page.

You can find all the polling results so far, including the raw data, by searching the Roper Center Archive below:

The collection of all nine of the Cards Against Humanity Pulse of the Nation polls is available for members to download. According to the folks at Cards Against Humanity, their polling questions cover “important topics other polls are too afraid to cover” – like whether Americans can name a single living economist, whether respondents thought they could get past Trumps’ border wall, and whether they think most white people are racist.
