CSP Polling wants to provide quality polling focusing on issues and elections of overwhelming public interest.
Founded by computer scientists experienced in data analytics, CSP Polling has five guiding principles:
Simplicity: Most public polling firms ask dozens of questions to gauge public opinion on a set of issues, not just electoral outcomes. We feel this leads to non-response bias and survey fatigue; as such, we focus primarily on demographics and one or two core opinion questions of interest.
Unbiased: We don’t structure our surveys to get a desired result.
Data-driven: We don’t make assumptions around party affiliation, but rather use aggregated data to model an electorate.
Diversity: We pull our results from online Q/As, cell phone surveys, and in person interviews. These are blended together to form a complete picture.
Transparency: We give access to our polling upon request and make most results public. All of our polls are published online for anyone to see.
