Another local firm has also been very busy. Dr. Jerry Ingram, whose firm is Southeast Research, has over 30 years of public opinion research experience. While he is primarily known for using his polling data to predict the outcome of elections, Dr. Ingram also has extensive experience using public opinion research in the business and legal arenas. He has given expert testimony in state and federal courts involving issues pertaining to disputed elections, changes of venue, economic damages, and the credibility of trial evidence generated from public opinion research.

His research and associated testimony have withstood legal scrutiny all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Dr. Ingram has assisted lawyers – both for plaintiffs and defendants – with jury selection and trial preparations using focus groups and mock trials. He has also worked with a great number of businesses in their marketing and organizational pursuits.

Dr. Ingram, a Professor Emeritus at Auburn University Montgomery, is currently a member of the American Association of Public Opinion Researchers and is certified at the Expert Level with the Marketing Research Association. I have found Jerry Ingram to be one of the most accurate pollsters in the country when it comes to political races. He has been right on target in every race that his firm has polled and that’s quite an accomplishment.
