Samantha Barthel, Research Assistant
Samantha Barthel joined National Research in January 2018, and serves as a Research Assistant at National Research Inc, and assists in various aspects of polling.
Samantha is responsible for assisting as needed on all projects.
She assists in candidate and district research, as well as the drafting of questionnaires and the processing of data. Samantha also assists in the creation of executive summaries and PowerPoint presentations.
An alumna of Monmouth University with a Masters in Public Policy, Samantha previously served as the Director of Constituent Affairs for former New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck and Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon. During her time at the high volume legislative office, she was able to familiarize herself with the role and functions of New Jersey State government, while the time she spent in graduate school is when she found her desire to pursue policy and data analysis.
When Samantha is not enjoying the fruits of politics, she enjoys cooking, abnormally spicy food, the beach, and taking naps on Sunday afternoons. Monmouth County is not where she originates from, but it has become a place she has grown to love and one she now calls home.
