Robert Blizzard

As one of the top pollsters in the country, Robert Blizzard’s political experience includes polling for presidential campaigns, major races for U.S. Senate and Governor across the country, party committees and Super PACs, dozens of Republicans in Congress, and state legislative caucuses across America.

In the 2022 midterm election, Blizzard polled for two new Members of Congress, including for Dr. Rich McCormick (GA-6) who cruised in November after winning both a competitive Republican primary and run-off election against a Trump-endorsed candidate, and for an independent expenditure on behalf of Anthony D’Esposito (NY-4).

Blizzard helped guide the return of several other Republicans to Washington, including long-time clients Andy Barr (KY-6), Thomas Massie (KY-4), and Claudia Tenney (NY-24). Blizzard polled for SuperPAC efforts to re-elect both Senator Marco Rubio in Florida as well as Don Bacon (NE-2) in a seat Biden won in 2020.

In addition to his political expertise, Blizzard also regularly conducts corporate image, messaging, and crisis management research for national and state-based associations, public affairs groups, and Fortune 500 companies on topics related to criminal justice, consumer and customer strategy, education, energy, finance, health care, retail, and tech, among others.

Over the years, Blizzard has overseen extensive qualitative research on a variety of topics and issues around the country – from politics to public policy – moderating hundreds of focus groups and ad-testing groups both in-person and online. During the 2020 election cycle, Blizzard helped center-right clients better understand the key voting constituency of suburban voters by pioneering innovative qualitative research to better understand the attitudes of this swing voter cohort during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A graduate of Clemson University, Blizzard lives in the Washington DC area with his wife and two sons. Prior to starting UpONE Insights, Blizzard spent nearly two decades at Public Opinion Strategies, working his way from starting as an intern to leaving as a co-owner of the firm and its top political pollster. Blizzard is also a partner in GP3 Partners, the largest communications and public affairs company in the United States.
