The first edition of an intelligence report by Zogby Strategies, a well-known brand in the world of survey research. In this first edition of our report, we analyze three crucial questions that portend the future cultural and political landscape - they deal with ethical questions surrounding biometric tracking, on trusting mainstream scientists vs. non-mainstream scientists, and the overall mood regarding AI and robotics powered by 5G. Finally, we cover important trends in the news that offer further direction as to where American culture is headed. This is an online survey of 1,001 American likely voters with a margin of error +/- 3.2 percentage points for the overall sample. Demographics have a higher margin of error.
