The Latest L2/HaystaqDNA 2020 Models

L2 and Haystaq are excited to announce our national political models, updated for 2020. Each of the 200 million voters on the L2 voter file has a score representing their likelihood of agreeing with any of 120 given positions. 

As of June 2020, our models are now updated to include a new set of contemporary issues: 

  • Black Lives Matter
  • 2020 General Election Turnout 
  • Early Vote Voter 
  • Absentee Ballot (Vote By Mail) 
  • Green New Deal 
  • Biden, Warren, Sanders Democratic Primary Supporters 

Modeling Process 

These models were built using response data from a national custom-built survey fielded via IVR -and live- telephone calls and an online panel. 

The indicator data used by these models is a combination of: 

  • Individual-level voter registration information and past voting behavior 
  • Individual and household demographic and consumer characteristics 
  • Census and geographic-level data
