David Gold

Director, Research

David has filled a variety of roles since joining GSG’s research practice in 2012, beginning in data analysis before transitioning into message development and also serving as captain of GSG’s plucky but winless intramural soccer team.

David has fortunately found more success in the political arena than on the soccer field, helping secure wins for clients including the Democratic Governors Association, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, and Congressman Brad Ashford, whose hard-fought victory in 2014 was one of just two Democratic pick-ups in the House all cycle. David also conducts research for several clients in the corporate and non-profit spheres, including ESPN and immigration advocacy organization FWD.us.

David began his polling career working for Garin-Hart-Yang in his hometown of Washington, D.C. He graduated with First-Class Honors from McGill University, where he studied Psychology and Economics.
