Exit Polls By Edison

Edison has been the exclusive provider of election exit poll data to the National Election Pool since 2003. During that time Edison has conducted exit polls for the 2003 California Governor Recall election, 23 Presidential Primaries in 2004, 40 Presidential Primaries in 2008, Midterm Elections in 2010 and the General Election in all 50 states in 2004, 2006 and 2008. We have also exit polled the NJ and VA races for Governor in 2009 and the 2009 NYC Mayoral Election. In 2012, Edison will again be the sole providers of exit polling data for the U.S. General Election.

These voter surveys provide political, demographic and geographic information detailing voters and whom they chose for President, Senator and Governor, as well as the results for newsworthy state ballot issues.
Exit Polls tell us:

WHO voted for each candidate
WHY voters in your area made critical choices
WHERE geographical differences on candidates and issues were a factor.

Edison Research currently conducts all exit polls and provides election projections and analysis for the news organizations that comprise the National Election Pool (NEP) – ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox, NBC and the Associated Press. Edison will again be the exclusive providers of exit polling data for the 2010 and 2012 National Elections. For more information on subscribing to the 2012 NEP Exit Poll data, click here.
