This page summarizes the data and documentation associated with the 2020 USC Dornsife / LA Times Presidential Election Polls. These polls were conducted in collaboration with the Center for The Political Future.

This page currently lists UAS primary election data and associated documentation. As these files are being released over time, you can follow us on Twitter @UAS_CESR for timely updates on recent releases, or watch for updates in our quarterly data user newsletter. To access UAS data files, simply register as a UAS data user.

Basic demographics are included in all files. As with all UAS data sets, election data may be linked to variables from Other UAS surveys for further analysis if desired. Simply merge these data with other UAS data sets using variable uasid (respondent identifier).

Information on weighting in the UAS can be found here. A direct download of the UAS Weighting Procedures is located here.
