Nationally-Recognized Results from First-in-the-Nation New Hampshire Primaries

The university's polling operation, founded in 1999, gained national prominence during the 2000 New Hampshire presidential primary when it chronicled Senator John McCain's rise and eventual double-digit victory in the Republican Primary. Since then, the Institute has conducted polls on state and national issues and political campaigns.

Consistent with the Franklin Pierce University Fitzwater Center's commitment to providing students with outstanding educational experiences in professional environments, student volunteers and interns have immersed themselves in the political polling process.

The University has partnered with veteran political analyst R. Kelly Myers and the Boston Herald to carry out a polling program that allows students to participate in survey design, data collection, analysis and media relations - all while working to create a statistically-valid product with solid news value.

Dr. Myers, who has conducted polling through five New Hampshire presidential primary seasons, spent the most recent election cycle as a Senior Fellow in the Fitzwater Center, and also taught a political polling course as part of Franklin Pierce's First in the Nation (#FITN) collaboration.
