Sir John Kevin Curtice, FRSA, FRSE, FBA (born 10 December 1953) is a political scientist who is currently Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde and Senior Research Fellow at NatCen Social Research. He is particularly interested in electoral behaviour and researching political and social attitudes. He took a keen interest in the debate for Scottish independence.
The BBC have made frequent use of Curtice during broadcast coverage of general elections in the United Kingdom, including his accurate predictions of the results in 2005, 2010 and 2015. He has picked up a strong following on social media, and was mentioned frequently on Twitter during the 2017 election, though he shuns this attention, adding "I've no wish to become a media celebrity".
