On Monday, Feb 1 2016, Edison Research successfully conducted entrance polling for the Iowa Caucuses on behalf of the National Election Pool (NEP). Edison interviewed 3454 voters at randomly-selected Republican and Democratic caucus sites. The Republican turnout was approximately 187,000 people, a record for the Iowa Caucus, and the Democratic turnout was 171,000. Senator Ted Cruz won the Republican contest, while Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders continue to be in a statistically close race for the Democrats.
Edison’s entrance 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 caucuses and enabled our member clients and subscribers real-time access to in-depth analysis of the Iowa results.
