NASHVILLE (March 4, 2021) – The Advocate, the leading newspaper in Baton Rouge and part of the growing Advocate chain in Louisiana, has joined the Power Poll network, it was announced today.
"We are so pleased to have The Advocate become a part of identifying and engaging powerful and influential leaders in U.S. cities," said Power Poll CEO Bruce Dobie.
"Our goal is to act as a civic engagement platform across the nation’s top markets, and The Advocate will help us accomplish that goal."
As a member of the Power Poll network, The Advocate will help curate the list of leaders in Baton Rouge who are named to the Power Poll member list. As well, The Advocate will send out a survey on a critically important issue once a month to see where its leaders in the city stand on that issue. Finally, the newspaper will write up the results and email them to Power Poll members.
Power Poll is not a scientific poll. Rather, it offers a fascinating glimpse into the thoughts, beliefs, and opinions of those who dominate the civic discussion across our country.
In addition to surveys, Power Poll offers tools that allow members to hold conversations about the issues being surveyed. It also frequently hosts zoom chats that delve into matters of civic importance.
The Advocate is not the first newspaper in the Advocate newspaper chain to join the Power Poll network. In April, 2020, The New Orleans Advocate, also referred to as the Times-Picayune, launched its first Power Poll.
