Director of Analytics Blake Reynolds Named Partner at Murphy Nasica

Murphy Nasica & Associates (MNA), one of America’s largest political consulting firms, today named Blake Reynolds as its newest partner. Reynolds is a brilliant political scientist and statistician who built one of the most reliable political targeting and predictive models in the nation.

As Head of MNA’s Analytics department over the last six years, Reynolds has overseen the firm’s successful efforts in the areas of methodology and modeling; polling and research; database management; data analysis; and, analysis application design and programming.

During that time, Reynolds developed more than 40 different product quality models to predict and analyze voter behavior – including vote choice, turnout probability, and issue prediction. Additionally, Reynolds designed and built national individual voter-level models for every voter in the U.S. and has created and conducted more than 1,000 internal polling projects.

“In so many cases, Blake’s keen academic approach to strategy has made political theory a reality and elevated hundreds of candidates to victory,” said MNA Partner Ross Hunt. “With Blake on our team, we have the finest statistical mind in politics driving each of our campaigns.”

A political scientist first and foremost, Reynolds brings his expertise in predictive modeling, statistics and mathematics, methodology architecture, data analysis, and algorithm design to all of MNA’s races.

Before joining MNA, Blake earned his BA in Political Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin.
