More Pluribus Than Unum? What America Believes
This survey is designed to leverage and expand on the learning gathered in the American Values Survey released at last year's Aspen Ideas Festival. In addition to tracking some of the key outputs of the 2012 American Values Survey's questions, this year's survey will explore the question of whether Americans are so divided along issue and value lines that they have come to question whether the United States can or should continue as one country. In other words, we will discover if, in 2013, America has more pluribus than unum in our attitudes.
