  • A push poll is a polling technique designed to persuade respondents to adopt a particular view under the pretense of conducting a poll. The entity conducting the poll often refers to negative aspects of a particular opponent or policy in order to influence the view of the poll respondent.
  • An opinion poll is used to determine the perspective of a particular survey sample. The responses from this sample are then applied to the larger population within statistical parameters.  Results from an opinion poll can be used to help a candidate determine which of his values to emphasize in his campaign.
  • A citizen survey is a variation of opinion polling in which residents of a specific region are questioned to determine their viewpoint on issues regarding their local community, government, and political issues.
  • Televoting is a form of opinion polling that incorporates random digit dialing in order to contact individuals who have the option to volunteer to receive written materials on a certain issue. The participants are asked to discuss the issue with their family and friends and then come to a conclusion regarding the matter. Once the deliberation period is concluded, volunteers are contacted a second time to voice their opinion.

Answering Machine Only Calls
Want to contact voters in a more personal manner? Our advanced technology allows you to record a variety of messages and select which to leave on an answering machine and which to play to a live answer. With this capability, you can choose a message in a more personal tone which will be left only when an answering machine picks up the call. Later when your client listens to their message, it will sound like you made the call personally. When the call is answered by a live person however, a more standardized message will be played if you choose to do so.

Branching Capabilities
Using the most sophisticated telephony technology, we have the capability to use targeted questions for each voter on your call list. By employing response-driven branching, you can avoid asking questions of people that are not applicable to them. Our system has the ability to screen responses from each individual and re-direct upcoming questions based on their selected response.  For example: Let’s assume your survey asks the respondent to select who they intend to vote for from a list of candidates.  If they select your candidate, he or she can be asked if they would like a yard sign or to volunteer, while those who selected any other candidate would be directed to either additional questions or a closing statement thanking them for their participation.

Direct Mail Enhancement
Follow up your direct mailings with a “chase” call.  To increase your response rate, tie your written message to an automated one expressing your ideas clearly in your own voice while encouraging a response to your mailing. Add power to your mail campaign, ensuring that potential voters will know your side on important issues.
