Professional Experience

Ben has worked in political polling for five years in Washington DC. He helps conduct quantitative and qualitative research for elected officials, political candidates, advocacy organizations, and ballot measures, and use that research to inform campaign strategy. His job requires a deep understanding of people: how to change the way individuals think and vote, and how to assess and predict the way that the entire electorate behaves.
