Cronkite-Eight Poll

In 1990, working with Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, HORIZON launched the Cronkite-Eight Poll. An accurate gauge of Arizonans' opinions on even the most controversial issues, the polls have become an information source for state and national media — making headlines in newspapers and newscasts throughout Arizona.
