Polling information as primary source

Polling information is a primary source because it is a measure of public opinion on a topic.  Databases and polling organization sites (such as Pew Trust and the Roper Center) provide poll data over a span of time on politics, consumer affairs, the environment, social issues, sports, and hundreds of other subjects.
