Field Poll shutting down at end of year

The Field Poll, which for nearly 70 years has tracked the opinions of Californians, announced today it’s shutting down in early 2017.

The poll was established in 1947 as The California Poll by Mervin Field, a groundbreaking pollster who died last year.

“It is with great sadness that I must report to you that our parent company, HAVAS Advertising, will be closing Field Research next year and all activities related to The Field Poll will cease at that time,” said Mark DiCamillo, director of the Field Poll. CONT.
