Our Company


To develop superior strategies using sophisticated research to find messages that influence consumer and voter choice.


If you understand how people think, you can shape opinion and change behavior. The power to effect change is well within your reach: the key is effective message development.


We find the messages that influence the decisions of consumers and voters because we combine the most advanced research techniques with a superior command of strategy. It is a powerful combination, proven to help clients around the world gain real advantage and win tough battles in highly competitive environments.


Polls cannot help you make the right decisions unless they are accurate. Our quality control with rigorous standards is unmatched. Our late tracking is always in the margin of error and we are accurate when others are off.

In the old campaign model, you first planned, then executed and never knew the impact of individual decisions. With Decision Analytics on your team, your campaign will quickly respond to changes in the political landscape and efficiently target responsive voters.
