Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research

This summer I worked at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, a Democratic polling firm which conducts research for political figures, advocacy groups, and corporations. During my time here, I was mainly involved in projects that strategically aided midterm candidates in their state and local races. Specifically, I supported GQR’s strategic recommendations to clients by testing and monitoring fielding surveys for the elimination of bias and by providing background research on news, political races, and the digital landscape. I also supported the digital team by compiling daily news related to the spread of misinformation on social media sites, platform updates, and Congressional efforts to better social media platforms.



I gained valuable experience at GQR Research. I was able to help in every step of the surveying process, from conception to implementation to debriefing. The most exciting part of this internship was knowing that the work I was doing was directly assisting key Congressional races during this election cycle.
