New Tulchin Research Presentation on Poll Results for Blue Shield of California Foundation: Californians See Domestic Violence As a Public Health IssueBlue Shield of California Foundation and Tulchin Research recently presented to the press and the public on the results of our research on domestic violence prevention. The PowerPoint presentation comprehensively covers our findings about Californians' attitudes toward domestic violence . Building upon a 2012 survey, the results show that individuals across the state recognize the important connection between health care and domestic violence. Findings reveal that Californians overwhelmingly approve of measures to train doctors and nurses to effectively identify and respond to victims of abuse. They also support a new federal policy under the Affordable Care Act that will require healthcare providers to screen for domestic violence during women's preventive health visits. The poll surveyed 800 adults statewide during Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October). Highlights include:
- Among types of people most trusted to help with domestic abuse: domestic violence shelter workers (85 percent) and doctors (83 percent) are seen as most trustworthy.
- Three-quarters (75 percent) have never been asked by their healthcare provider about threats from their partner or spouse despite a strong majority of adults in California (60 percent) who report having a family doctor they would feel comfortable discussing personal domestic violence concerns with.
- 81 percent support a different approach for dealing with domestic violence, one in which practitioners screen patients for signs of abuse occurring in the home.

New National Poll Conducted by Tulchin Research and MFour Strategies for Represent.us Shows Broad Support For Reducing Corruption, Including Through Campaign Finance ReformNumerous public and private polls have already documented a growing feeling of alienation and disenfranchisement among American voters, and the erosion of confidence in Congress. This poll attempts to understand the cause of – and potential solutions to – this growing dissatisfaction by measuring current voter attitudes toward money and corruption in politics, and testing alternative campaign funding and anti-corruption solutions. The results are compelling. While many national polls seeking to understand America’s deep dissatisfaction with our government show a moderate to deep divide along party and ideological lines, this poll suggests overwhelming consensus amongst Democrats, Republicans, Independents and non-affiliated voters around the issue of corruption in the American election system and the need to institute tough, meaningful reforms. The poll suggests now may be the most opportune time in modern history to toughen the nation’s campaign finance laws and restore an electoral system that voters agree has been soured by big money and political corruption The Represent.Us poll was conducted Nov. 12 to 17, 2013 by polling firms MFour Strategies and Tulchin Research and surveyed 1,003 likely U.S. voters. The poll was administered using an online format and adapted for voters using Apple and Android-based smartphones. The sample was controlled and weighted to reflect U.S. voter demographics.The margin of error for the overall sample was +/- 3.5 percentage points. --- Download the Poll Memo Here Download the Topline Data Here ---
