Great job, Tom and all :)Have a Happy New Year!


Thank You


Yes, these were great ones to re-live. I read most of these on your blog as they were released, and they were fascinating to watch unfold!Some people spend too much time criticizing PPP for being Democrat-leaning. Im a Republican myself, but Ive never found so much as a shred of bias in your polling. (I feel the same way about the Rasmussen Poll.) I dont think the personal political leanings of the company owners matter when the focus is on accuracy, which is the hallmark of both polling firms, I believe. (And why not? The concept of a pollster being accurate is pretty basic to getting and retaining business!)Id add one more poll from 2010 that PPP released that shook things up in the political landscape: The West Virginia Senate poll that put John Raese up 3 points over Joe Manchin. While Manchin ended up winning that contest, Im pretty sure that PPP poll caused wholesale shifts in Manchins campaign messages and promises, and will likely influence his voting behavior the entire time hes in the Senate -- which might end up being a lot shorter than many pundits think.Great job, PPP! I look forward to reading many more poll resulsts in the coming year. Im pretty sure well be seeing a lot of Senate polls on Missouri, Montana, Nebraska and Florida, just to name a few.

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?"
