Monmouth University Polling Institute
was established to be a leading center for the study of public opinion on important state and national issues. The Polling Institute's mission is to foster greater public accountability by ensuring that the voice of the public is part of the policy discourse.
While much of Monmouth's survey research output focuses on its home state of New Jersey, the Polling Institute has conducted polls in more than a dozen states as well as nationally. The
Monmouth University Poll was recognized in 2013 as the only poll that correctly forecast the outcomes of both the November gubernatorial race and the unprecedented October U.S. Senate contest in New Jersey before those elections, leading the
Asbury Park Press to call Monmouth's polling operation "freakishly accurate."
The Polling Institute is led by Patrick Murray, who was one of just six people in the New Jersey political world recognized for
Winner of the Year
honors in 2013.
PolitickerNJ also ranked Murray at #30 on its
of the one hundred most politically influential non-elected figures in New Jersey, marking his fourth consecutive appearance on the news site's annual list.
