Everything you’d expect. And then some.

We deliver everything you’d expect from a leading opinion research firm—our experience and talent run deep, our research is accurate and our commitment to client service is exceptional.

We also proudly stand apart from the crowd in important ways:

  • Our polling is nationally recognized for its accuracy. In 2012, our pre-election polls accurately predicted the results of eight candidate and ballot issue races within an average of 1.8 points of the final results. Further, when Nate Silver rated the accuracy of presidential polling in 2012, we ranked in the top five of 90 firms nationwide
  • We know the West. With offices in 10 Western states, Strategies 360 has more combined policy, research, and communications experience in the West than any other firm in the country. We conduct several thousand telephone surveys each month—from Alaska to New Mexico—and have conducted focus groups with voters and consumers all across the region.
  • We are non-partisan. Our research doesn’t come with an asterisk because we don’t work in biased partisan trenches. Decision-makers and the media trust us to call ‘em as we see ‘em.
  • Our qualitative specialists are best-in-class. Our focus group moderators are routinely described by clients as having a “magic touch” for the seemingly effortless way in which we engage a diverse range of participants and explore all angles of an issue. We love uncovering those “aha!” moments that represent a turning point for campaign strategy.

Always at the cutting edge

S360 Research utilizes a wide range of research tools, with an emphasis on emerging practices and technologies to stay ahead of dynamic changes in our industry.

We’d be happy to talk with you about why we include cell phones in every poll, when to use online focus groups, and why advances in the field of behavioral economics are changing the way we develop questions. We’ll help you find the right tool (or mix of tools) for your project based on your audience, objectives and resources.

  • Telephone surveys: Our bread and butter. Always reliable, accurate and relevant.
  • Online surveys: Great for reaching member and donor audiences. Demographically representative panels are also available.
  • Dial tests: Real-time perception tracking of an audience's feedback to advertising, broadcast media, and speeches.
  • In-person focus groups: Our moderators can read a room like nobody’s business. “Aha!” moments are included in the price of admission.
  • Online focus groups: Need to recruit participants across three time zones for one conversation? No problem. Online platforms are better than ever and yield tons of insightful feedback.
  • In-depth interviews: One-on-one conversations conducted over the phone, in person or online. Great for executive and opinion leader audiences.

  • Ballot initiatives
