Today Pasquines introduces the 2016 Elections Puerto Rico Poll, an initiative to gauge public sentiment in Puerto Rico about local and national candidates, on a consistent, transparent basis. Every two months leading up to the general election, Pasquines will conduct the poll and release the results and raw data to the public for academic, journalistic and general usage.

This poll will completely transparent, standardized, and the first to include questions about the presidential race in Puerto Rico. We are also pioneers in releasing data that will be entirely bilingual, available in both Spanish and English. The poll is being conducted in partnership with The Puerto Rico Monitor.

As each poll is conducted, we will release analysis and discussion of the results.


We will accept opt-in responses on our online-based survey. To validate each participant’s answers, we are asking a targeted question that will help us identify those who complete the survey multiple times, and artificial entries.

Depending on the participation rate, our sample size may vary. Likewise, the standard error from the survey will vary with each issue, but will be calculated to the 95% confidence level.

Results and data should be published after the 15th of the ending month, with subsequent analysis to follow on Results will be available at


Our goal is to conduct the poll every 2 months leading up to the November election.
