Polling & Analysis

Clients rely on our accuracy for data they can confidently act on. They also appreciate our rock-sold analysis - informed by advanced statistical techniques and proprietary metrics.

Focus Groups

We conduct focus groups to explore the psyche and words used by a population of interest. This is how we get what's related to a problem or issue “out on the table" and develop messages.

Dial Testing

Leverage moment-to-moment measurements on video ads, speeches, debates, movies or even sports uniforms. Receive clear + precise results on what persuades and what doesn’t.


From legislative concerns to community issues, clients can benefit from our grassroots program administration. We've managed thousands of such projects since 1992, gaining unparalleled expertise.

Data Collection

With over three decades of questionnaire, sampling and interviewing experience, we've seen it all and done it all. Allied pollsters turn to us to field best-in-class studies and gather first-rate mixed-mode data.

Voter Contact

Every successful campaign must communicate with large numbers of voters. When they need to do so by phone, they rely on Competitive Edge to make the calls that can make all of the difference.
