Changemakers need information about how the public feels to make the best case for the change we need.
That’s where Navigator Research comes in.
Navigator is a consortium of progressive polling firms managed by The Hub, designed to act as a consistent, flexible, responsive tool to inform policy debates. By conducting research to inform allies, elected leaders, and the press, Navigator helps top leaders in Washington and grassroots leaders around the country shape the debate on the issues that matter most.
Navigating the Crisis of a Generation
As the U.S. began social distancing to curb the spread of the coronavirus, Navigator Research worked with the Groundwork Collaborative and Governing for Impact to create Navigating Coronavirus. For eight weeks beginning in late March 2020, the project released new polling data six days per week, and has since moved to weekly polling to track Americans’ rapidly changing views of the pandemic, the economic crisis, nationwide protests against police violence and the Trump administration’s ongoing response.
The project is anchored by a daily email digest of the latest developments during the pandemic, along with roundups of the latest polling, economic context and message guidance. Releases from Navigating Coronavirus and Navigating the Vote have helped our partners, lawmakers, and the media understand how to communicate about the biggest issues facing the American people.
Three in five American voters said President Donald Trump has given up fighting the coronavirus pandemic on behalf of the nation, according to a new poll from Navigator Research.
Polls that help progressive leaders shape the debate around key issues
Our experts on the Navigator Research team provide key guidance to partners, law makers, and activists about how to win the argument for progressives.
Whether it’s on a call with grassroots partners or at a briefing with the Congressional Progressive Caucus, we’re able to make the case to a variety of audiences about what Americans want to see out of their government.
A Navigator Research poll published Thursday [August 27, 2020] found that respondents believe by a 55 percent to 39 percent margin that Trump has failed to “restore law and order to the country,” as he claimed he would during the 2016 campaign.

By focusing not just on the news of the day, but long-term policy fights as well, we’re able to be a resource for progressives looking to win the day and those looking to build a movement.
A Navigator Research poll published Thursday found that respondents believe by a 55 percent to 39 percent margin that Trump has failed to “restore law and order to the country,” as he claimed he would during the 2016 campaign. A different framing of the subject found that 53 percent disagreed with the premise that Trump is “keeping America safe by focusing on law and order and supporting the police and law enforcement”; 47 percent agreed.
Three in five American voters said President Donald Trump has given up fighting the coronavirus pandemic on behalf of the nation, according to a new poll from Navigator Research. The national online survey of more than 1,000 registered voters found that 52 percent of Americans also feel strongly that Trump wants what is best for himself over what is best for the country.
“The breadth and depth of Trump’s weakness is hard to overstate,” says Democratic pollster Margie Omero, a member of the Navigator Research team that has surveyed more than 24,000 Americans on a rolling basis since March. “There was a little bit of rally-round-the-flag at the beginning–people wanted him to succeed–and then when it was clear that he wasn’t taking it seriously, you saw that change.”
In a new poll out Thursday by Global Strategy Group/GBAO and Navigator Research, three in five respondents disapprove of the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic, with 51% strongly disapproving of Trump’s efforts. An increasing majority of respondents, including 42% of Republicans, think the worst is yet to come, and only one in five think the worst of the pandemic is behind us.
