In recognition of the number of winning campaigns conducted by The Tarrance Group, Ed and his partners Brian Tringali and Dave Sackett were honored as "2010 Republican Pollster of the Year" and "2014 Republican Pollster of the Year" by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).Ed is also widely recognized as one of the country's leading political strategists.
