PROPA presents groundbreaking insights into Russian public opinion amidst ongoing conflictб, realised by a team of researches from the University of Helsinki. Utilizing CATI and online surveys, it delves into within-individual variance and dynamics across three waves. Contrasting traditional methods, PROPA’s large samples closely mirror population parameters, offering nuanced subgroup analysis and design flexibility. Initial findings reveal notable disparities between official electoral results and respondent sentiments, highlighting complex attitudes towards legitimacy and support for incumbents amidst turbulent times.
