Vic Fingerhut appears to have been involved in a couple of different organisations.

  • The Fingerhut Granados Opinion Research did pseudo-polling for the Tobacco Institute. It saved a lot of time by starting with the conclusions the client wanted, then working back to the questions that, theoretically, they'd need to ask.

  • He is also listed at, Fingerhut, Power, Smith and Co., Washington, D.C. as a board member of Americans for Democratic Action (ADA). This is an old Democrat institution which dates back to the Roosevelt era. It describes itself as "the nation's most experienced organization committed to liberal politics, liberal policies, and a liberal future."
