Internal Polls
Do the candidates have access to better poll numbers in order to focus their campaign time and money?

If so what polling organizations do they use.

They spend way more money, which in theory means better results.

They spend far more money on them, they are far more selective about who they include, and they are after the truth, not a precanned narrative.

re: Internal Polls
So they have personnel on staff doing the data? Not an independent company?

re: Internal Polls
Yes. Internal polls are much more accurate. They are used for ad buy, campaign event planning, where to send surrogates, all kinds of decisions.

The data sciences part of high level campaigns is extremely disciplined.

The best pollsters in the world will be working for campaigns and not news outlets or other polling firms if that’s what you’re asking

Campaign pollsters also have access to better data

Trump uses McLaughlin & Associates and I believe they still use pieces of defuncted Cambridge Analytica from 2016.

This has turned out to be an informative and reassuring thread.

Take it the friend is Matt Schlapp?
