President of Hart Research and adviser to Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe
Geoffrey Garin is the president of Hart Research Associates, one of the nation's leading survey research firms. He became president of Hart Research in 1984, after having worked in the firm since 1978 as a senior analyst and vice president. Mr. Garin has brought his skill, insight, and innovative approaches as a researcher and strategist to a wide variety of fields – including social and economic policy, consumer marketing, and politics.
Mr. Garin has a well-earned reputation for helping candidates win in difficult circumstances. Mr. Garin has directed the polling and created winning campaign strategies for many of the leading Democrats serving in the U.S. Senate, including Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Mark Warner, Dianne Feinstein, Jay Rockefeller, Patrick Leahy, Max Baucus, Ben Cardin, and Bernie Sanders. In 2008, he helped direct the strategy team for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign during its final two months, and in 2012 he served as the pollster and strategic advisor to Priorities USA, the super PAC supporting President Obama’s reelection.
As the chief pollster for the McAuliffe for Governor campaign, Mr. Garin has crunched the numbers from day one and has a unique understanding of the Virginia electorate, Terry McAuliffe’s campaign strategy and the strategy future Democrats may want to follow to win in this swing state. He will also explain why his numbers were so different from those coming from the Washington Post and other sources. We very much look forward to his insights and the Q & A session to follow.
