Treasure State Poll 2020

Understanding the Treasure State Together!


The Department of Political Science at Montana State University continues to steadily move toward our goal of becoming the leading source of political poling and analysis in the state. Launched in 2018, the Treasure State Poll developed by MSU Political Science faculty and conducted by MSU students, was the ONLY university poll in the state to accurately predict the results of the competitive Senate and House elections in 2018. Due to the generosity of so many Montanans and Bobcat alumni during MSU’s Giving Day in 2020, our Treasure State Poll received the funding necessary to cover the 2020 pre- and post-election poll.  

If you are enjoying the 2020 election night coverage and the analysis we provide based upon our Treasure State poll, please consider donating now. Good, quality opinion polling is an expensive but sorely needed asset for Montana. Without it, policy-makers and the public cannot understand our hopes, dreams and aspirations when making decisions in Helena and in Washington. Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or $500 will help MSU faculty and students to continue our poll in 2021, 2022 and beyond, allowing Montanans today and into the future to understand the state and communities we love.
