He’s an advocate ...

John is an inveterate pollster, autodidact and numbers guru nonpareil. You’d have to dig deep and wide to find someone who knows both the current and historic trends in states across this vast nation as good or better than he. 

There are indeed many rooms in the mansion, and John occupies his own wing when it comes to political origin stories. He literally taught himself sampling and aggregation – all the standards skills needed to...

Dan Judy is a partner with Northstar Public Opinion Research, one of the top Republican polling firms in the country. His client list reads like a who’s who of Republican politics and electeds from the past 20 years.
