The Omnibus Project (TOP)

The Omnibus Project (TOP) is a polling consortium managed by Catalist and run exclusively for the progressive community. Each nationwide TOP poll involves approximately 1,200 respondents matched to the Catalist voter file. Partner organizations — including the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, NEA, SEIU, and the Strategic Victory Fund use these data to inform strategic planning and results are fed back into Catalist’s file, improving modeling and other services for clients. 

TOP polls are matched to the Catalist voter file, which includes 4 billion data points for more than 261 million unique individual-level records.

TOP polls oversample Black, AAPI and Latino respondents to ensure surveys adequately reflect responses from voters of color.

Data are shared exclusively with the progressive community.

Results inform Catalist’s class-leading models, which are used across the progressive ecosystem to reach audiences.

Polls are conducted monthly in midterm and presidential years and conducted bimonthly in odd years.

Longitudinal data sets spanning six electoral cycles reveal evolving attitudes, opinions and voting behaviors.
