Hickman Analytics, Inc. ASSETS Our methodological expertise is matched by our experience in the types of campaigns that separate good  polling firms from exceptional ones.   We bring the hard-earned day-to-day experience of over 100 major  campaigns, involving hundreds of separate primary and general elections at every level of politics throughout the country.  As a result, we understand the political elements of campaigns better than our competitors.  We do not think that it was an accident which led U.S. News & World Report to name us the "Most Valuable  Pollsters" or CNN to name us "Best in the Business."  Yet, as in our research methods, we continually improve the product we provide our clients.  Specifically: We have had particular success in helping Democrats win in tough states.  We have played a critical  role in electing Democrats in difficult states and challenging circumstances in Southern and border  states.  These include governors Mike Beebe (AR), Ned McWherter (TN), Jim Hunt (NC), Ann Richards (TX), Jim Folsom, Jr., (AL), Don Siegelman (AL), Mel Carnahan (MO), Ray Mabus (MS), Bob Kerrey  (NE), and Martha Layne Collins (KY); U. S. Senators John Edwards (NC), Terry Sanford (NC), Sam Nunn (GA), Bob Kerrey (NE), Ben Nelson (NE), and Mark Pryor (AR); and Attorneys General Mark Pryor  (AR), Dustin McDaniel (AR), Thurbert Baker (GA), Mike Moore (MS), Chris Koster (MO), and Jim Hood  (MS).  We have a record of success in highly competitive and multi-candidate Democratic primaries.  The record of our winning campaigns in competitive Democratic primaries is almost too long to list.  Some of the recent winning campaigns in difficult primaries include U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (MD), Governors Jim Doyle (WI) and Ed Rendell (PA), Congressman John Sarbanes (MD), Attorney General Chris Koster (MO), and gubernatorial nominee Jim Davis (FL).
