Meet Douglas Schoen

One of America's most influential Democratic campaign consultants and widely recognized as co-inventor of overnight polling, Douglas Schoen utilizes research-backed analysis to provide critical insights into the increasing gap between politicians and the American mainstream.  

Douglas Schoen is one of the most insightful political analysts in America today—a 30-year veteran of political campaigns and polling, he shares with audiences his candid insights on the new crisis in democracy and what it means the future. Widely credited with turning President Clinton’s political fortunes around during re-election, he was named “Pollster of the Year” by the American Association of Political Consultants. Internationally, he has worked for the heads of state of 15 countries, including British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and three Israeli prime ministers. As a Harvard Law School and Oxford University graduate, Schoen is highly sought after for his strategic research to an extensive list of corporate clients, including AOL Time Warner, Procter & Gamble, Major League Baseball, AT&T, Frito-Lay and Citibank. A regular contributor to The Wall Street JournalThe Washington Post and FOX News, Schoen identifies political trends and the polarization that has divided the American political system. Schoen is the author of multiple books, including Hopelessly Divided: The New Crisis in American Politics and What It Means for 2012 and Beyond (April 2012), which analyzes the growing chasm between the political class—politicians, lobbyists, fundraisers, consultants—and the American mainstream, frustrated with government’s inability to address the major issues affecting their lives. This gap has given rise to populist movements on the right and the left and driven our two-party system to the brink of possible collapse—in ways that have never been fully discussed or articulated. Recently, Schoen co-authored The Russia-China Axis: The New Cold War and America's Crisis of Leadership (2014).
