Project objective: Study the electorate's attitudes towards the electoral process and analysis of current political trends in Georgia.

CRRC-Georgia, with the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), has conducted 28 waves of nationwide opinion polls and approximately 100 focus group discussions since 2008 which delved into a variety of political and policy issues in Georgia. The data collection effort has included partial panel and experimental survey designs. These are some of the only data collection efforts in Georgia which measure longitudinal public attitudes towards politics, policy preferences, voting behavior, and gender issues and are made publicly available. Since 2012, CRRC-Georgia has conducted over 30,000 interviews within the scope of this project.
