SOF Digital Discussion: Survey Says: Measuring Public Opinion Amid Pandemic

Join us on Wednesday, April 22 from 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. EDT for a detailed briefing on public opinion of the COVID-19 pandemic and how this data informs our political and economic reality with Morning Consult’s Co-Founder Kyle Dropp. As chief research officer, Dropp will provide insight into the dramatically different world we find ourselves in and how the real-time information he gathers is informing the path forward.

** If you are not currently a member of the Society of Fellows, and are interested in joining, please contact the SOF team at or 970-544-7980.


Dr. Kyle Dropp is the co-founder and chief research officer for Morning Consult, a global data intelligence company delivering insights on what people think in real time.
He co-founded Morning Consult in 2013 and leads the company’s research division, including its relationships with more than 250 Fortune 500 companies, media organizations and industry trade associations.
His 2015 landmark theory on “shy Trump voters” became a fundamental concept of 2016 election discourse, earning national attention and cementing Morning Consult as a “breakout company that broke the dam in 2016 polling,” according to Business Insider.
Dr. Dropp earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from Stanford University and was a Visiting Associate Research Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Journalism from The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
