|In 1982, Potomac Incorporated opened its doors in Bethesda, Maryland to conduct public opinion polling, political consulting, and market research.
Our staff honed their skills in the political and public policy arena. Many of the senior Potomac staff rose to prominence in working for Members of Congress, the Center for National Policy, Congressional Quarterly, and the University of Maryland.
In our first decade Potomac was both newsmaker and chronicler, headlining election analyses in Baltimore, Washington, and Virginia. All the while, we were orchestrating many successful campaigns for Congressional and statewide candidates.
