Public Opinion Strategies Partner Lori Weigel is based in the firm's Colorado office. Professionally, Weigel has a unique niche as a "conservative conservationist." She has polled extensively for conservation organizations, including The Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land, the Energy Foundation, Environmental Defense Fund, National Wildlife Federation, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Wilderness Society, the League of Conservation Voters, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University. This has included extensive research on clean energy, climate change, land conservation, and water quality issues. Lori has spoken about public lands and conservation issues at numerous conferences and forums, including to US Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA last year, at the Department of Interior, Department of Agriculture, White House, Capitol Hill, and to the boards of TNC, NRDC, CGBD, and other conservation organizations. Weigel has directed research efforts for hundreds of political and public affairs campaigns throughout the country, including polling on behalf of presidential campaigns in four of the last five presidential elections. Her political work today is primarily focused on polling for and against ballot measures. She has polled on behalf of the winning side of statewide ballot measure campaigns in over a dozen states, as well as local measures from Washington to New Jersey and Florida to Wyoming.
