    We select local partners based on quality, track record, and compatibility. For qualitative work we will always send a team member to brief the local partner and engage in the local fieldwork process from beginning to end. Wherever possible, we try to meet local stakeholders and gain firsthand experience of local markets.

    Our Research Division owns and operates a series integrated in-house research call centre in Ontario, Canada in which 100% of our domestic research is conducted.

  • Polling


    Our firm specializes in two distinct types of polling and research services on behalf of government: Public Opinion Telephone Surveys using Live Agents and Public Opinion Telephone Surveys using our Automated IVR platform.

    Using Live Callers - These calls are made by our professional team of survey takers, expertly trained in conducting all types of survey research polls.

    Automated IVR Polling - These polls use Automated IVR Surveys to allow respondents to respond to a pre-recorded series of questions by touching their telephone key pads to register their answers. This form of surveying can be extremely cost effective and quick to deploy.

    Advantages of Automated Surveys:
    - Inexpensive compared to Live Agent Telephone Surveys.
    - Able to obtain very large sample sizes (larger sample sizes decrease margin of error and increase confidence in statistical results)
    - Rapidly deployable.
    - Respondents hear the exact same pre-recorded questions which reduces the potential for bias arising from human agents.
    - Respondents may be more “honest” when dealing with a machine versus Live Agent.

    Advantages of Live Agent Telephone Surveys:
    - Know exactly who is answering the survey.
    - Trained agents can more effectively interpret and solicit responses.

  • Baseline


    A baseline poll is a detailed survey of to gauge the feeling, sentiments and major issues that matter to your audience. It develops a detailed breakdown of your strengths, weaknesses, issues, messages and opponent(s). From this information a campaign road map can be developed to plan every step and target your messaging. A baseline poll should be as possible to ensure you are armed with the details you need to win a campaign.

    Overview and Process

    This poll would be conducted by phone from our Research Call Centre. It would be made up of many closed-ended questions and a few open-ended issue based questions. These questions would be tailored to your needs. Our Research Firm would develop a scientifically accurate random sample of voters from your area.

  • Resonance


    Trend polls are conducted within the context of your active campaign. This will help determine that your messaging is being absorbed by the sampled universe and it serves as a progress chart of your campaign.

    Often a trend poll will discover holes in your messaging and can determine whether strategic or tactical changes are needed. It may also serve as an indicator of changing dynamics in your campaign. This form of polling is recommended after your campaign communicates by mail, debates, media, or mass canvass. Campaigns that are the first to notice the changes and possible issues with their internal messaging will have a strategic advantage.

    Trend-based polling is also the ideal platform to incorporate issues that may be gaining momentum on the campaign trail. Often voting issues change as the campaign enters the writ period; what may have ranked as a mid-level issue can quickly climb to the top. This is often caused by increased discussion and policy that may be disseminated by other candidates or from your own platform. History reveals many examples of campaigns that championed the wrong issues without properly polling the electorate. More often than not, this will result in a slide in popularity and ultimately a loss. Campaigns that monitor issues throughout an election are able to spot these trends early and alter their messaging appropriately.

  • Tracking Intelligence


    Tracking polls are short polls designed to help you manoeuvre your campaign through the final stretch. These polls provide information vital to the refinement of your strategy and tactics. Your field coordinators will use tracking polls to adjust plans and assignments accordingly and your media team will use them to alter television and radio rotations or adjust mail targeting. They are not intended for the development of completely new plans, strategies, or tactics. Tracking polls enable your campaign to see a snapshot of the electorate. This will help you determine whether your momentum is building, stalling, or slipping.

    Tracking polls are often deployed after debates, prior to and immediately after advance polls, and in the final fourteen days of the campaign.

    Our Research Firm always recommends having strategies in place in case the intelligence you receive is not in your favour. In the event polling shows a decline in support, solid strategies must be executed immediately. Polling which reflects negative results in the final stretch of an election may cause a deflation of morale in your candidate and campaign staff. It is suggested that such results are only discussed between the campaign manager and the Research Firm so we can help guide your team through this turbulence.

  • Viability


    This poll determines a candidates viability prior to entering the race of before making major policy decisions. It is also used to determine the strengths/weaknesses of your opponent(s) at a vital stage. The information gathered from this poll, will serve as your campaign's Launchpad and help you navigate through the first weeks of your campaign.

    Viability Survey

    These surveys are also best suited to help potential candidates determine if the seat is winnable and the popularity of both themselves and other candidates who may consider running. Since questions are often based on calculated speculation, we put more emphasis on the cross tabulation of results to show how voters' intentions would differ if their first choice candidate were to drop out or decide not to run.

    Bench Viability

    These preliminary polls are a combination of the baseline poll and the viability poll to provide you with comprehensive information on your candidate's strengths and weaknesses, your opponent's strengths and weaknesses, issues, messages, and potential messages. These surveys also address the campaign's starting point and may identify key issues. A bench viability poll will provide you with the insights for a strong foundation upon with you can build your campaign.

  • Focus Groups


    Our Research Firm will pull your vote the right way. Our Live Agent Campaign Callers will call through your lists delivering crucial Election Day reminders and thereby ensuring your voters know where to vote, and understand the importance of casting their ballot.

    If your voter needs directions to the poll, we can email them a map and driving directions or verbally instruct them as to the best route to take to the polling location. We also take ride requests that can be accessed in real time on our E-Day Client Interface.
