Suffolk University Political Research Center

Proven precision, wide reach, and trusted expertise

Established in 2002 and based in Boston, the Suffolk University Political Research Center (SUPRC) conducts statewide and national surveys as well as bellwether polls. It examines political races and analyzes voters' opinions on key issues.

Suffolk University presidential polls have predicted outcomes in key battleground states including Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Having conducted extensive polls and bellwether surveys in the 2004 presidential election and beyond, SUPRC has now expanded its reach overseas. Suffolk was the only U.S. university to poll the 2017 French election. The Center found that Emmanuel Macron led his opponent, Marine Le Pen, by 16 points in the run-up to France's presidential runoff. Macron did indeed win by a comfortable margin.
