Methodology

Political Intelligence is a proprietary platform of Morning Consult and provides real-time polling data on political elections, elected officials and voting issues. Morning Consult conducts more than 20,000 global interviews daily.

The global leader and country trajectory data is based on a seven-day moving average of all adults in a given country, with a margin of error of between +/- 1-4%. In the United States, the average sample size is around 45,000. In the other countries, the sample size ranges from roughly 650-5,000. 

All interviews are conducted online among nationally representative samples of adults. In India, the sample is representative of the literate population.

Surveys are weighted in each country by age, gender, region and, in certain countries, education breakdowns based on official government sources. In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity. Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries.

Professional translation companies in each country conduct the translation and localization for each survey.
