Public opinion surveys can be a lot of things – a snapshot in time, a roadmap telling you where to go, a glimpse into the unknown, reassurance that you are headed in the right direction, or a wake up call when you’re not. Accurate and unbiased survey data is one of the most important tools in your toolbox.

How We Survey
HighGround specializes in strategic messaging surveys that to gather a broad spectrum of public opinion including perception of the client, awareness of their challenges, public priorities, views on broad and specific issues, vulnerabilities, and argumentation.
Our surveys are conducted by professional live interviewers calling individuals based on the pre-determined quotas. We conduct our surveys on landlines and cell phones – direct dialing mobile phones individually as required by law. Our team can perform survey research in both English and Spanish as necessary.
The survey deliverables include crafting the survey, conducting the calls (both landline and cellphones), providing topline and cross-tabulated results, crafting a client report, and providing briefings as necessary. The length of the survey and the number of people in the sample audience has the greatest an impact on its overall cost and the instrument and the associated costs are always approved by the client before it is executed.
