So Tom, will you do me the favor please and post what the actual (not likely voters) partisan voter registration is in PA-12? Thanks

If voters dont pay attention to polls, they wont know who is non-viable. Targeted media communications level the playing field. grassroots social media campaigns lower the costs and barriers to entry. More candidates can get the attention of more voters when expensive tv ad buys are no longer the sole means of communicating to voters.The unusual strength of non-viable candidates may also be a more valid indicator of the strength of fledgling, decentralized, yet growing movements: tea party, 9/12, GOOOH, etc.

Tom, can you please do me a favor and post what the actual (not likely voter) voter registration by party in PA12. Im asking b/c I think that the actual Dems there is 53% to 36% Rs and 11% Indies. And I saw a susquehanna poll today that had Critz up with 6 points and they had 63% Democrats! and it might be very off target. (You had 55% Ds and had Burns up 3). Thank you very much. I appreciate it a lot.

How popular is the Iraq war amongst Kentucky Republicans? Is it too crazy for Grayson to get to Pauls right by saying Paul would have voted against the use of force?Pauls general election chances are starting to worry me. Just gave 50 bucks to Grayson.

Cont...: Also its different if Terry (R-NE) loses a third to a Tea Partier, but those will 100% vote in Nov. for him, but conservadems of WV will vote against Rahall this time like they voted against Obama and even stronger, in WV-1 Dems still have a chance because some Dems (registered and in name only) might not abandon their party this time, but the liberals might stay home and let either conservative win.

Tom, youre on the mark. You should also post on unknown challengers getting a third in a primary and nobody heard of them. Dems who voted against HCR and lost a third might lose a bit only of a few disappointed liberals staying home, but Rahall losing a third means that hes TOAST! That third a probably McCain voters that will vote for the GOPer in November because hes too liberal.

Its not just the Senate. Candidates that havent raised any money are pulling in 30% of the vote in House primaries. Some people will punch any name that isnt the incumbent.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2014

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?"
