On March 20, 2012, Edison polled 1,621 Republican Primary voters in Illinois to determine their candidate choice and the reasons for their preference. Our Exit Polls, conducted on behalf of the National Election Pool (NEP), showed Mitt Romney to be the winner, followed by Rick Santorum in second, and Ron Paul in third.
Republican Turnout in Illinois was approximately 925,000 voters. Edison’s exit polls were used to determine key information from voters, including demographic data, important issues and the “electability” of the various candidates. Edison’s election team captured, processed and analyzed thousands of data points within the short duration of the primary and enabled our member clients and subscribers real-time access to in-depth analysis of the Illinois results.
