Barack Obama is a public figure on par with Kennedy and an orator on par with Reagan. #dbelections12— Eitan Arom (@Eitan_Arom) November 7, 2012
Obama very fair to Romney family on legacy of public service--a generous comment that he can certainly afford to make.— Alexandra Tashman (@alexandra_tash) November 7, 2012
Romney gracious in defeat, remarking that “I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”— Alexandra Tashman (@alexandra_tash) November 7, 2012
The Daily Bruin collaborated with the UCLA Department of Statistics to gauge the political climate on campus during the 2012 election season.
An anonymous online survey was emailed to 8,000 undergraduates through the UCLA Registrar’s Office, which students could fill out between Sept. 24 and Oct. 9. The survey received 718 responses — a 9 percent response rate. While low, the responses matched UCLA student demographics and are an accurate indicator of the campus. The margin of error for the survey overall is 4.1 percent.
Students in the UCLA statistics course 140SL, which is about statistical consulting, analyzed the responses to the survey.
