ComRes is a polling and research consultancy with British origins. The company has its registered company headquarters in London and also has offices in Brussels, Edinburgh and Cardiff. ComRes was established in 2003 under the leadership of its current Chief Executive, Andrew Hawkins.[1]

The company’s main business is carrying out bespoke qualitative and quantitative survey research on behalf of clients across the UK and Europe. It is chiefly known in the UK for its monthly voter intention polls on behalf of The Independent, and for its polls of legislators.[2]

The company also specialises in business-to-business, social, stakeholder reputation and healthcare research.

ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules.[3]


ComRes uses a panel survey approach for its polls of legislators. In both Houses of the UK Parliament, the European Parliament, and the devolved legislatures, ComRes sends out self-completion postal questionnaires to legislators who have pre-agreed to take part in surveys; “The panel”. ComRes’s panel of MPs for example is made up of nearly 300 members. A recent survey of the House of Lords showing the opposition of the house to reform was a panel survey of this type.[4] These panels are regularly refreshed from the wider membership of each legislature.[5]
