Congress - NEW!

Why should they? Most informed people know Larry Kissell is a freshman Congressman representing the 8th Congressional District in North Carolina.


When you start a story, you should identify the state, the office and the party that the story is about.


8th district GOP name recognition? Come on guys, one has the distinct advantage on that front.


No Republican with name recognition? What about The Big Guy Harold Johnson, beloved WSOC TV sports caster for 25 plus years?? Everybody knows and loves him!


As someone who was polled by PPP over the past weekend on this very topic, I must say that the poll was very professional and well-done. Great job, PPP! ... Im curious about how the final results tally up, and I particularly am intrigued about the question asked to determine whether the listener actually knows Congressman Kissells health care reform bill vote. ... Im also curious whether there may be any impact evident in this poll regarding the name ID of the GOPs DAnnunzio. He actually started running TV ads during the week before the PPP poll. My guess is that his ads were way too few to matter in a district as large as NCs Eighth. Of course, it is true that DAnnunzio has also had a bevy of billboard ads all around the district already. The GOP primary is going to be expensive! ... And that will benefit Congressman Kissell in the end because the eventual GOP nominee he faces will come out of a bruising primary contest.


Did you poll Chris Kouri or one of the former Kissell operatives pondering a run?

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
