Former ASU pollster Bruce Merrill to do new polls

The former director of the Arizona State University Survey Research Center and the Cronkite/Eight Poll is again doing statewide polls.

Bruce Merrill is joining the Morrison Institute for Public Policy as a Senior Research Fellow to direct a new statewide public opinion poll.

Merrill is well known for his nearly three decades of polling in Arizona and for political figures in 27 states. He retired from ASU’s Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in May 2008.

Merrill will poll Arizonans on important policy and political issues, often collecting information useful for the nonpartisan public policy research that ASU’s Morrison Institute does.

Dr. Tara Blanc, who collaborated with Merrill for many years, will co-direct the polls.
