Adam Probolsky is the President and founder of Probolsky Research, a non-partisan opinion research organization that conducts polling and analysis for a range of clients including government, non-profit and political candidates.

  • Adam was raised in West Orange, New Jersey.
  • Growing up, Adam volunteered with his local Republican party.
  • He served as a Planning and Finance Commissioner for the city of Irvine, CA.
  • Adam sat on the Energy and Environment Committee of the US Chamber of Commerce.

“Identifying who is going to show up and vote is one of the most fundamental aspects of the job.”

“Our biggest fear is that the research report we deliver [the client] ends up on the shelf. We want it to be used, because we know that data will be helpful for them.”

Probolsky is a well-known pundit, and has contributed to The New York Times, Politico, the San Francisco Chronicle, and MSNBC. Probolsky shares the pollster research process from start to end, sharing the benefits of polling in the current age of technology.

Probolsky Research accepts interns all year round, and he emphasized that interns will, “roll up their sleeves and get to do the work.” You are welcome to email, but he encourages you to make the phone call.
