Overview:

RacetotheWH breaks down the strategy driving campaigns and analyzes the political battleground using sophisticated, data-driven analytics. Our interactive forecasts provide polling and predictions for every major Senate and Governor race up in 2022.

The site launched during the 2020 election, and our forecasts were one of the nation's most accurate. Our Senate forecast outperformed all of our top competitors at predicting the final margin of victory in close races, outpacing Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, Rachel Bitcoifer, and the Princeton Election Consortium. The Presidential forecast successfully predicted Joe Biden's narrow victory in Arizona and Georgia as early as June.

 

Team:

Founder and Editor in Chief: Logan Phillips

RacetotheWH was born out of a personal project Logan worked on at the height of the pandemic in New York City. He was in his final semester of Graduate School at Columbia University when the school shut down, and he channeled his restless energy and cabin fever into building a Presidential forecast that became the foundation for the political news site. 

At Columbia University, he got his Master's Degree in International Affairs, with a Concentration in Security Policy. He studied Presidential Campaign Management directly under Professor Karrine Jeanne Pierre, who just joined the Biden administration as the Deputy Communications Chair.

Before Graduate School, Logan cut his teeth in American politics both in D.C. and around the country. He worked in President Obama's White House as an intern for the Department of Scheduling and Advance. In addition to assisting the President's Scheduling Team, he designed a series of Domestic Policy lectures for other interns to get to meet with Deputy Advisors to the President and learn from their expertise. 

Logan organized for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential Run in South Carolina, and Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy’s Re-Election. On both campaigns, he recruited, trained, and mobilized a team of volunteers to win the state election. He also worked on the political team for the American Institute of Architecture. Finally, his undergraduate degree was at Gettysburg College, where he studied political science, with a focus on presidential decision-making.

Today, Logan has designed the election forecast and interactive features published at RacetotheWH. He is also responsible for the digital marketing strategy aimed at attracting more viewers to the site. You can contact him at [email protected]
