The delegates have given both party chairs remarkably high overall job approval.
Recently we wrote up a few results from surveys of Utah Republican convention delegates. We conducted surveys of the Republicans and Democrats. More analysis will follow, but it’s time to release publicly the full methodology and topline results. Normally we’d post this kind of thing on the web site of BYU’s Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, but it’s been a tough week for IT at BYU. The server hosting the CSED website has been down all week. Rather than wait, we’ve decided to post links to the reports here.
Many thanks are due to the party chairs and executive directors for both parties: Jim Dabakis and Matt Lyon for the Utah Democratic Party and Thomas Wright and Ivan Dubois for the Utah Republican Party. They deserve kudos for allowing us to conduct these surveys with their cooperation. When you download the reports, you’ll see that the delegates have given both party chairs remarkably high overall job approval.

Why is the post-convention response rate substantially higher for the Republicans? Was the survey clearly associated with BYU? I’m just curious if there is a “BYU effect” present, perhaps either encouraging or discouraging delegate response.
