The Hill and Decision Desk HQ Announce New 2024 Election Partnership
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Hill and Decision Desk HQ (DDHQ) today announced that they will partner to provide The Hill’s audience with national, state, and local background, interactive elements and maps, real-time returns and race calls for the 2024 election cycle. The partnership will kick off with returns and race calls for the elections being held on November 7, which could provide important clues about the inclinations of voters and effectiveness of campaign strategies heading into the presidential and congressional races in 2024.
The partnership will include a whole new product experience for The Hill, including new tools powered by DDHQ, such as user-generated polling averages and a new co-branded polling average for later this year.
Joe Ruffolo, Senior Vice President and General Manager of The Hill and NewsNation Digital, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Decision Desk HQ to deliver unique functionality, information, and tools for our users. We see the data and product experiences of DDHQ as a natural and powerful pairing to the strong brand, leadership, and reporting of The Hill.”
“The Hill’s influential audience depends upon it for definitive, non-partisan political information, and we’re excited to put our returns, race calls and other data in front of that audience for the coming cycle,” said Drew McCoy, President of Decision Desk HQ.
