The Phillips Academy Poll, also informally known as Andover Poll, conducts surveys of voters across America and rigorously analyzes the data in order to present a clearer picture of the status of these races. The surveys are primarily conducted over the phone and through text messages, and the data is weighted so it more accurately reflects the views of the electorate.

Founded in 2021 by Patrick Chen and Alex Shieh, The Phillips Academy Poll’s mission is to provide accurate, independent, and non-partisan data and analysis regarding voter sentiment relating to key elections.

For polls conducted in the weeks before Election Day 2022, The Phillips Academy Poll boasted a 100% record polling the Senate. Most notably, Phillips Academy defied most other pollsters by predicting Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto’s win in Nevada. After the votes were tallied, Cortez Masto did indeed emerge victorious, allowing the Democrats to clinch Senate control.

Phillips Academy polls have been covered extensively, including by MSNBC, Fox News, BBC News, The New Yorker, Politico, The Guardian, Newsweek, NPR stations, FiveThirtyEight, local newspapers, television stations, party committees, and commentary outlets across the political spectrum from Breitbart to Crooks and Liars.
