The Elway Poll has been providing independent, non-partisan analysis of public opinion in Washington and the Northwest since 1992. The quarterly survey of Washington voters has chronicled changing public opinion about every major issue on the public agenda.

The Elway Poll monitors changing public thinking and analyzes the interplay of issues, opinions and elections. By following candidate races and ballot issues through the eyes of the voters, it helps readers understand the currents of public opinion beneath the "horse race" numbers.

The Elway Poll provides unmatched perspective on current public opinion by analyzing changes over time, examining demographic and regional findings within the state, and relating state findings to national survey data.

The Elway Poll is rated as one of the top 6 election pollsters in the United States, with an "A+" grade from fivethirtyeight.com.


Although The Elway Poll is published free of charge, hundreds of organizations have used it to stretch their research dollar to assess public thinking about their issues by using one of these proprietary services:

PROPRIETARY QUESTIONS. Space is reserved in each survey for organizations to include private questions. Clients receive the answers to their questions, crosstabulated by demographic variables, immediately after completion of interviewing.

ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS. Subscribers are entitled proprietary questions at a discounted rate. Some use this feature as a cost-effective single survey. Others use it to track changes over time, ask follow-up questions or create their own index, asking a few questions each quarter.
