To better understand public opinion, The Texas Lyceum commissions an annual survey on the critical policy issues facing Texans. The mission of the Lyceum Poll is straightforward: Produce a professional, nonpartisan, high-quality, scientific survey that provides the public with:

  • Specific data points on issues of interest
  • A time series of key demographics, attitudes, and opinions

The trademark of the Lyceum Poll is its transparency. All top-line and detailed cross-tabular results, as well as weighted data sets for each poll, are published on the Lyceum website.

The 2019 Lyceum Poll
Democracy, Approval Ratings, and the 2020 Presidential Election 

The 13th Annual Texas Lyceum Poll, conducted from August 16-25, 2019, is devoted to the topic of democracy. Our goal is to enlighten the public and policy makers on the attitudes that Texans hold toward democracy as well as opinions on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary election and the approval ratings of President Trump, Governor Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick.
