Youre living in an alternate reality (again).Joe Liebermans unpopularity has little to do with health care. Hes been walking a fine line ever since he endorsed John McCain. He has no base.Blanche Lincoln is a liberal Senator in a very conservative state. Thats why her negatives are similar to other Democrats but exaggerated.House Democrats who voted for the House bill could gain moderate credibility if they oppose the Senate bill, with its Cornhusker Kickback, Louisiana Purchase, abortion funding, and overall Rahm-it-through go-it-alone approach against strong bipartisan opposition.

About 84 Democrats represent districts that voted for Bush and/or McCain (some of their districts gave McCain an even greater vote share than Bush), but only 39 Democrats voted against the House bill. There are likely more Democrats that would benefit politically by switching votes from yes to no rather than the reverse. People who voted yes would love a second bite at the apple to vote no this time, because they went home and got an unpleasant experience because of their votes, said Rep. Jason Altmire, a moderate Democrat from Pennsylvania. On the other hand, he added, I dont know anybody who voted no who regrets it.

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?"
