Scott Rasmussen is slated to speak on October 27th at the National Chicken Council’s 67th Annual Conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Scott Rasmussen oversees one of the world’s premiere polling organizations. He is a president of RMG Research, Inc. In the mid-1990s, Scott was a pioneer in the field of automated polling and led the transition away from operator-assisted polling. More than 20 years ago, he released the first-ever daily presidential tracking poll. Since those long-ago days, the era of phone polling has come to an end.

Today, the political, polling, and media world continues to change, and Scott continues to innovate. Such innovation has been a hallmark of Scott’s career. In 1978, the then-new technology of satellite communications dramatically reduced the cost of sending a broadcast signal around the nation. Building upon that opportunity, Scott and his father, Bill, founded ESPN, the cable sports network.

Scott launched his first website in 1994 and became the first pollster to offer data directly to the public rather than filtered through a network reporter. It was also at that time that Scott saw the potential for the concept of automated polling and ultimately revolutionized the polling industry. That led the Washington Post to call Scott “a driving force in American politics.” The Wall Street Journal described him as a “key player in the contact sport of politics.”
