the exclusive providers of exit poll data
Edison Research began exit polling in 1996, and since 2003 we have provided election projections and analysis for the news organizations that comprise the National Election Pool (NEP): ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox, NBC and the Associated Press.
The national exit polls are perhaps the largest, most logistically challenging research projects in the world. We task thousands of interviewers on one single day to administer and report hundreds of thousands of interviews and then deliver the data in real time.
When you hear election projections, results or analysis about who voted for whom, that information comes from Edison Research.
