It’s Polling Season

As the political season heats up, so does the volume of political polls.  You can’t avoid hearing about the latest polls on the news.  At EMI, we support many clients’ polling efforts, with a few of our recent successes described below.   We can find respondents by DMA or age in the US, and we can help support polling needs in other countries as well.

Our core difference is IntelliBlend®, a proprietary process that takes a scientific approach to blending panels, social media, and other sample methodologies to provide a consistent and un-biased solution. This is imperative in political polling, as various online (and offline) sample sources often change in behavior over time which can affect the outcome of the poll.
