About Power Poll

Power Poll was founded in 2019, as a civic engagement platform that brings together the most influential and powerful leaders across business, civic, media and political industries. We survey, hold conversations with, and engage our members to understand their collective positions, opinions, and thought leadership on critical issues. Power Poll publishes what America’s leadership is thinking to create solutions and bring action to these problems, challenges and opportunities.
