Supplementary notes

Eight hundred and seventy-six surveys were collected to form a nationally representative base of respondents with additional oversamples from individuals who identified as Jewish, Muslim, African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic or Latino, or LGBTQ+. For the oversampled target groups, responses were collected until at least 200 Americans were represented from each of those groups. We oversampled the Jewish population until 500 Jewish Americans responded. Data was weighted on the basis of age, gender identity, race, census region, and education to adjust for national representation.
