Gallup Brain = question responses in individual polls

The Gallup Brain reports responses to individual questions asked in Gallup public opinion polls from 1936 to the present (currently 2016). Search for words appearing in questions, or browse polls to locate specific questions. "Locate a question" tool retrieves similarly-worded questions asked in Gallup polls across the years, permitting you to create trend time-series.
