MFour Conducts First-Ever Mobile-Only Political Strategy Poll
Costa Mesa, California October 17, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) MFour Mobile Research, in collaboration with Public Opinion Strategies, recently conducted the first mobile-only nationwide political strategy poll, providing more real-time, wide-ranging and in-depth information on American's opinion on various political issues and figures.
The mobile research poll surveyed public opinion with regard to a number of areas including issue priority, party images, bumper stickers, reaction to audio clips of recent speeches on immigration and reaction to images from a potential Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
Employing mobile research technology for polling purposes will become increasingly important to obtaining accurate poll results as the technology becomes more widely adopted and it supplants traditional telecommunications technology, such as landline phones and desktop computers. Currently, 91 percent of Americans own a cell phone and 35.8 percent of Americans use their cell phone exclusively, eschewing landline telephones. In 2014, use of mobile devices to access the Internet will overtake that of traditional desktop computers. As the public shifts to tablets and smartphones, so must polling firms to get the most realistic sample of the American public.
Conducting the poll in the mobile medium provided MFour and Public Opinion Strategies to employ several new tools to solicit public opinion, options not available to polls using traditional landline phone calls as their primary information-gathering tool. Tools provided by mobile technology included:
The survey was conducted from May 2-3 and interviewed 800 adults via mobile phones and tablets. MFour worked in partnership with Public Opinion Strategies, the No. 26 polling firm in the nation in terms of revenue, to conduct the poll.
As mobile devices become nearly ubiquitous in modern society, taking advantage of the polling opportunities offered by mobile research technology is an opportunity polling firms cannot afford to pass up. MFour and Public Opinion Strategies recent pioneering partnership in this area will be soon followed by the rest of the polling industry.
