About Resurgent

About Resurgent Republic

Resurgent Republic is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to shaping the debate over the proper role of government. Resurgent is an independent, not-for-profit organization that conducts public opinion research, and makes the results public through its website (www.resurgentrepublic.com), press releases, press conferences, and various publications.

Resurgent Republic helps policy makers, think tanks, interest groups, and others advocate for policies that are consistent with conservative principles, and oppose policies that stifle job creation, weaken national security, and undermine values that have made America a great country.

Former RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie and GOP pollster Whit Ayres founded Resurgent Republic in 2009.
