Pollster Profile: Jan van Lohuizen

Dr. Jan van Lohuizen conducted polling for Senator Elizabeth Dole earlier this year. You may remember our discussion of her approval numbers.

Van Lohuizen is best known as President Bush’s personal pollster. He is based in Houston, Texas and has worked with Bush and Karl Rove since 1991. Van Lohuizen’s polling company, Voter Consumer Research, has worked for numerous Republicans and major corporations such as Wal-Mart, Qwest, Anheuser-Busch, and Microsoft. Van Lohuizen is currently working for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

This entry is going to be pretty short because Van Lohuizen is also known for being very low profile. He doesn’t do many interviews, nor does he seek out the limelight like other presidential pollsters. But here is a good article from the Washington Monthly that provides some insight into Van Lohuizen and Bush’s relationship.
