Test Dina Titus in NV, Perlmutter and Hickenlooper in CO and maybe Halter and Beebe and some picked at random unknown state senator or something like that in AR. Just to see if Lincoln is more damaged than the Democratic brand.


In AR, test former state Sen. Jim Holt. He lost to Lincoln in 2004 and lost the Lt. Gov race in 2006 to Bill Halter. He announced yesterday he is running again.


Any chance of polling North Dakota soonish? Would be interesting to see how Pomeroy, Ed Schultz match up against Hoeven.


Aside from the fact that Martha Coakley does not seem to be running as strong a race as might be hoped (whats with the no advertising?) Deval Patrick is in lots of trouble in Massachusetts. I personally like Patrick and think he has not gotten credit for many things that he has done, but he is having trouble raising money, and the strategy of counting on Tim Cahill keeping down Charlie Bakers numbers is very questionable.


Please poll Shelley Berkley in Nevada, and Diana DeGette in Colorado as alternatives to Reid and Bennet. I would also be interested in seeing some polling of South Carolina. SC is becoming an interesting state, and Im curious as to how popular loony tune Jim DeMint really is down there. I know there isnt much of a Dem bench, but with two potentially competitive congressional races, could be interesting.


You seem a little, just a bit, biased.


How do you reason that having ANYBODY besides Harry Reid as the Dem standard bearer in Nevada doesnt help the odds of keeping the seat?

Alex S.

I guess the strongest democratic candidate in Arkansas would be Mike Beebe? Just for the fun of it, Id like to see how Bill Clinton polls.


Democrats will keep the Senate seat in Connecticut now. Im gonna bookmark this. :-)


The allegations that Byron Dorgan was clearly going to lose his seat if John Hoeven made a Senate bid are clearly unfounded. There have been very few polls, and almost all of them were GOP-biased, with the intention to help the party recruit Hoeven into the race. What do you think of the prospects of a governor leaving in the middle of his term to challenge a popular incumbent senator?


Youre way overconfident, I have hi res pics of Blumenthal doing it with farm animals. Just wait!

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
