Finding Articles

Generally, you can search for the term "public opinion" in indexs such as the ATLA Religion Database to find articles on polling results as they relate to religion. Indexes from the social sciences can also be useful, such as Sociological Abstracts. Polling results are often reported in the popular press, so it can be useful to search sources such as Lexis Nexis Academic Universe or Academic Search Complete.
