This research note introduces a new social media poll of supporters of Russian opposition politician Aleksei Navalny, conducted during his presidential campaign in 2017–2018. Borrowing items from nationally representative surveys, we present respondents’ sociodemographics, political positions, and campaign experiences, differentiating between offline activists and online followers. We then discuss limitations and possible future applications of the data and conclude by stressing the value of social media–based surveys of opposition campaign supporters.
