Brian C. Tringali is an original partner with The Tarrance Group, one of the most respected and successful Republican survey research and strategy firms in America today. Tringali has continued to provide advice to numerous Governors, U.S. Senators and Congresspersons over the past 30+ years.
In 2013, the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) named Tringali the “Top Republican Strategist” for his work with Governor Scott Walker during his successful 2012 recall election in Wisconsin. Back in 1991, Tringali was named a “Rising Star” by Campaign & Elections magazine. During the historic 1994 elections when Republicans took over Congress for the first time in 40 years, Tringali was the pollster for the Republican Contract With America. In the 2018 election cycle, he was the pollster for now Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.

He has worked successfully with the mining, timber, tobacco, gaming, drug and telecommunications industries, as well as sports and racing teams.
