Election campaigns
An early “benchmark” poll to understand the attitudes in your constituency, and develop your early messaging and strategy is key to success. Later smaller polls can track changes, monitor progress and suggest course corrections. Stratcom has pioneered and has a proprietary approach to daily or weekly tracking of online polling during large election campaigns that can give early warning, and helps us give you the best advice of how the political landscape, and campaign dynamics, are changing and need to be responded to.
Government & govt agencies
Advocacy organizations

The tracking polling with Stratcom is invaluable. We turn to it regularly to refine our communications, advocacy and organizing. Because we are in the field each quarter, we can see new opportunities as they arise and respond quickly.
