Political Communication

Since 1993 the Annenberg Public Policy Center has studied Americans’ political knowledge, discourse, media use and opinions about candidates and issues. Among our projects has been the National Annenberg Election Survey (NAES). FactCheck.org researches the veracity of claims made by political candidates. The Annenberg Classroom and the Leonore Annenberg Institute for Civics offer an array of resources for educators and youth.
