President and CEO of Zogby International
The Way We’ll Be: The Zogby Report on the Transformation of the American Dream
President and CEO of Zogby International, John Zogby remains by all accounts the hottest pollster in the United States today. In the razor-thin 2000 elections, daily national tracking polls conducted by Zogby International in the last few weeks foretold a tightening of the race for president while nearly all other polling firms projected an easy victory for Gov. George W. Bush.
His clients include MSNBC, CNBC, The New York Post, Fox News, Knight-Ridder Newspapers, Gannett News Service, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Albany Times Union, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cincinnati Post, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, the Rochester Democrat, the Syracuse Herald, and nearly every daily newspaper in New York, as well as television stations throughout the U.S.
He has been praised as “the most accurate pollster” (Seattle Post Intelligencer, Cleveland Plain Dealer, USA Today), “respected” and “pioneering” (Albany Times Union), “the pace setter in the polling business” (New York Post), and “the big winner in 1996” (Campaigns and Elections and the O’Leary/Kamber Report).
Zogby regularly appears on all three nightly network news programs, including The Today Show, Good Morning America and is a frequent guest for Fox News and MSNBC specials, along with Hardball with Chris Matthews. He also is a regular political commentator for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the British Broadcasting Corporation. He has been profiled in the New Yorker, Fortune Magazine, Inc., and Investors’ Business Daily.
His analytical expertise has been published on the opinion pages of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Christian Science Monitor, Philadelphia Inquirer, Newsday and Boston Globe. Mary Matalin, host of her own national radio show, calls Zogby the “prince of pollsters,” and Barry Farber has declared him “America’s Pollmaster General.”
Zogby holds degrees in history from Le Moyne College and Syracuse University and has taught history for 25 years. In addition, he is a member of the Board of Trustees of Le Moyne College and received the distinguished Alumni Award in 2000. In 2005, he was awarded Honorary Doctorate Degrees from State University of New York and the Graduate School of Union University. He is also a Senior Advisor at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
Zogby’s new book, released in August 2008, and the topic of his lecture for the Morning Forum, is a portrait of the new American consumer, The Way We’ll Be, The Zogby Report on the Transformation of the American Dream.
