You are oversampling Democrats if Whitman is leading by 14 with independents. I realize you want to get paid by Kos, but remember what happened to Research2000...

Dustin Ingalls

Suffolk showed almost the exact same results we did, and every pollster is showing both Boxer and Brown pulling out to larger leads. We have a contract with Kos, and its not contingent on our results for even the polls we do for them, let alone our public, pro bono polls. 6 days until our critics eat crow....

6 days until our critics eat crow....Youre so very funny Dustin. Im laughing now and in 6 days Ill be rolling.But of course, were not talking about comedy here - now are we Dustin? Say credibility, credibility and ah yes, more credibility.


Heres something Ive been thinking about ... if its true it would completely change the dynamic of polling. Check it out.I believe that a lot of Republicans are calling themselves Independents which is why the GOP has such a big lead with them.But because these people call themselves independents doesnt really mean that they are. A lot of them are probably still registered as Republicans. If this theory is true - it seems like it would seriously skew the weighting of the electorate and the likely voter screen.

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?"
