NEC Polling Institute

Since its founding in 2002, the Center for Civic Engagement at New England College has enjoyed considerable success. Through the Center’s efforts, New England College has hosted numerous debates for Congress and Governor, town hall meetings, open forums, and guest speaker programs. Indeed, the Center for Civic Engagement has made NEC a must-stop on the campaign trail, or, as its director Dr. Wayne Lesperance says, “Where the Road to the White House Begins.”

In 2012, the Center launched the New England College Polling Institute which was immediately met with success through coverage on local, regional, and national news outlets like CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and Washington Post. In fact, by the time the final analysis was being written about the 2012 Presidential election, noted pollster and New York Times blogger, Nate Silver, described the NEC Poll as, “one of the most accurate state wide polls of the 2012 election cycle.”

Our polling program has no issue or geographical limits and is a useful tool for businesses, non-profits, and interest groups. We provide survey research and analysis for a myriad of clients. Our services can be completed quickly, accurately, and are very affordable.
