Annie Norbitz joined Hart Research in 2012 as part of the Garin-Hart-Yang political team, assisting partner Fred Yang throughout the 2012 and 2014 election cycles in support of Democratic candidates and progressive initiatives up and down the ballot and across the country. In 2015, she joined Hart’s team of analysts, practicing a wide array of both qualitative and quantitative methods on topics spanning from education to youth homelessness to the environment. She has developed a keen interest in political research, working on behalf of clients including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), Senate Majority PAC (SMP), the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), and the Center for American Progress (CAP), as well as playing an integral role in polling a slew of competitive congressional districts throughout each election cycle on behalf of House Majority PAC. Annie is also part of the research team conducting ongoing work on behalf of Priorities USA, the voter-centric advocacy group working to advance progressive values and engage Americans of all backgrounds, both during and in between election cycles.
Annie graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 with a B.A. in communication and public service, and she was the recipient of the George Gerbner Award for Best Senior Honors Thesis in the undergraduate communications department.
